There is no such functionality. What would be the use case for this? For
P2P, there are actually changes in behavior while disabling AP
capability would not result in any difference that I can see apart from
rejecting some commands. In other words, I'd rather do this at higher
layer (i.e., do not issue those commands to wpa_supplicant).
