What is this needed for? Please note that the peer may change its listen
frequency and in general, I would not recommend upper layer components
use this.

src/p2p/p2p_i.h (just like any other src/*/*_i.h header file) is
internal to the specific src module and it is not allowed to be included
into wpa_supplicant/*. If there is strong need for getting this
internal-to-P2P information into the D-Bus interface, a new accessor
function for listen frequency would likely need to be added into
src/p2p/p2p.h to enable this functionality.

The p2p_peer command includes number of private implementation specific
information for debugging purposes and as such, it cannot be used as a
justification for exposing this through the D-Bus interface.
