What are you using this value for? Please keep in mind that it is an
internal data within the P2P module and it is only used for GO
Negotiation. It is included in p2p_peer output only for debugging
purposes and it is not supposed to be used for anything else.

This field is not used in autonomous GO case - it is only for temporary
GO Negotiation needs.
