Thanks, applied with some changes. The unmodified version resulted in
regressions to the cases where the Invitation Response frame is from the
device that becomes the GO since incorrect operating channel was
indicated in the message (one of those client-only channels). That broke
P2P Client side scan optimizations. I restored the previous behavior for
the case where the local end determines that it is the GO for the group.
