It's been on my nice-to-have to-do list for the past three years.. ;-)

hostapd has support for per-station PSK with WPS and the key addition
for the feature here would be to extend wpa_supplicant implementation to
support that, i.e., configure WPS Registrar to issue per-device PSK in
wps_build_cred() in src/wps/wps_registrar.c and store the P2P Device
Address (or interface address for non-P2P devices) with the runtime
network (struct wpa_ssid) and for persistent groups, store that
information with the rest of the persistent group information. The PSK
src/ap/wpa_auth.c would need some changes to make it match the P2P
Client case based on P2P Device Address instead of the P2P Interface
Address since the latter can change for each instance of a persistent

Disconnecting a client part would then be to remove the identified
address,PSK pair and deauthenticate the station from the group.
