Hey guys, please give some input.

I want to understand why the probe request frames are registered at
the wpa_supplicant only when the device is in listen mode?
Which component(fw/driver/supplicant) will handle those probe in
active mode(the device in GO state)?
If this response done by lower layers (driver/fw) how the information
element is passing to those layer, which API is used?

Any explanation about the partitioning of those messages between
layers will help.
