However, if we start wpa_supplicant to control two interfaces and one of them supports P2P feature, then all the probe requests will contain WPS and P2P IE even if we do not activate WPS. So the following patch is generated to fix this.

The P2P information is added by design to make P2P device discovery
somewhat faster by allowing the non-P2P scans to be used, too. If you
want to disable this, you can use the per-interface p2p_disabled=1
parameter to do so for the interfaces that won't be used for P2P
