Please note that I'm planning on committing a different way of
addressing Wi-Fi Display support as soon as the specification gets
published. As such, I'm not sure whether these changes to introduce IEs
into Probe Request/Response frames are really needed. Or are you
planning on using these for some other purposes? Please note that these
are not sufficient for Wi-Fi Display support.
