Sorry it took so long to review this. The patch was using incorrect
address in the comparison (comparing P2P Device Address to the P2P
Interface Address which may be different). In addition, I don't think we
should try to maintain separate copy of the peer connection state within
the P2P peer table. This is extra information and does not really work
correctly in cases where the same peer may be involved in multiple
groups. To avoid these issues, I used different approach by checking the
already existing information on connected P2P clients and GO connections
on all group interfaces.
