That "wilink" part there seems to imply that this is using some modified
version of wpa_supplicant. No such driver interface exist in the
upstream version and I don't know how this driver interface behaves
especially as far as P2P is concerned. As such, I cannot really help
with this and you would need to talk to whoever supports that modified

Similarly, there are parameters here that are not included in upstream.
This mailing list is for the upstream version of wpa_supplicant, not
some proprietary modification of it.
