Apart from this I did not see any other comments. There are two other 
options to deal with this:

- have wpa_supplicant_enabled_networks() always return 0 for P2P_DEVICE 
- remove networks from P2P_DEVICE after loading configuration.

I would like to know what would be preferred solution for this before 
submitting these as formal patches.
