The autogo test fails on my environment.

[test command]
$ ./start.sh
$ ./run-tests.py autogo
$ ./stop.sh

[result log]

Physical wlan device: exists but device driver unloaded. So no wlan device
found by ifconfig -a.

[cause of the error]
test_p2p_autogo.py#test_autogo fails with "Unexpected group interface
name on GO".
Because interface name created for GO is p2p-wlan0-0.
The vif was created. Because WPA_DRIVER_FLAGS_DEDICATED_P2P_DEVICE flag is on.

How can I avoid this error ?

The buildbot <http://buildbot.w1.fi/hwsim/> looks passed this test.
