I'd recommend moving to the current wpa_supplicant version and using
VENDOR_ELEM_ADD control interface command before started the group. For
example, "VENDOR_ELEM_ADD 3 dd050011223344" would add an IE to the
Beacon frame from the GO. More details on how to use this is in the
commit message for the change that added the VENDOR_ELEM_ADD command:
