This is a good example of why the new p2p-dev-* control interface was
not a good thing to have.. I converted the test scripts to use the
global control interface for P2P operations and this allows both designs
to be used.

test_autogo_tdls is still failing due to the hack it uses to build a P2P
persistent group entry. I guess something else needs to be done here
(e.g., another hack to push that network profile to the p2pdev
interface). The other test cases should now pass with both the
driver_param=p2p_device=1 (i.e., with the dedicated P2P_DEVICE) and
without this (wlan# netdev for P2P management operations).
