Could you please clarify why this functionality needs to be enabled from
a command line? Didn't the MESH_INTERFACE_ADD command added support for
adding a new mesh interface? Does this new command line argument add
some significant extra functionality above that?

usage() needs to be updated to describe the new command line argument.
Similarly, wpa_supplicant/README and
wpa_supplicant/doc/docbook/wpa_supplicant.sgml should be updated
whenever adding new command line arguments.
