MAC addresses are the same, and P2P device address is the same as well
(though different from the MAC) and well, otherwise my patch wouldn't work.

FWIW, the patch just provides a symmetry, one can run "wps_pbc
xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx" from wpa_cli which will result in skipping overlap
detection, so why don't we do that for P2P?
