That would sound much more useful approach here. Similarly,
wpas_network_disabled() may need to return 1 for that interface.

Same comment as in the previous email, i.e., must not remove disabled=2
networks. That said, I don't think this filtering of networks is going
to work. There needs to be support for adding new networks dynamically
over control interface and there is even a corner case of a network
block changing from disabled=0 to disabled=2. All those operations are
supposed to work, i.e., the only thing that is not supposed to work is
using a network profile to request connection with an AP (or mesh/IBSS).
