p2p_find can be used to run a scan for both P2P device discovery and
non-P2P use cases (finding an AP) without having to run two separate
scans. As such, I'm not sure that it would be justifiable to save some
CPU load if that comes at the price of having to run two separate scans
to cover both the P2P and non-P2P uses.
