But I failed connect two P2P devices with"p2p_find/p2p_connect" commands. It just look like there is some error in the EAP  method choosing phase .The two devices reports the fllowing message.

That does not look like EAP method selection issue, but something going
wrong during WPS. Please collect more debug information from both
devices by adding -ddt to the wpa_supplicant command line and looking at
the debug log rather than the limited messages showing up in wpa_cli.
