The dedicated P2P management interface aka P2P_DEVICE has some issues when
it uses the same configuration as the main interface. These were addressed
by the commit mentioned below:

     wpa_supplicant: Add a configuration file for the P2P_DEVICE parameters

The P2P_DEVICE interface is automaticallly by wpa_supplicant and as such
it feels strange that the user should be aware. Hence this series aims to
resolve the issues and allowing use of a single configuration file.

Posted for comments. Recent post by Michal Kazior [1] solves the networks
config issue in a different way.
