This looks reasonable for now. The nl80211_send_frame_cmd() can be made
to use a new internal flag to indicate the P2P use case separately.


There is no need to send me patches to update nl80211_copy.h. I will
pull those separately from wireless-testing.git anyway and will only do
this after the changes actually get applied there.
