> This was added since at least for the case of a dedicated P2P Device interface the command to flush a BSS does not exist. Would you consider adding this to the P2P global interface redirection. Alternatively, this can be added conditionally only for the case of a dedicate P2P Device interface.

Hmm.. What do you mean with the command not existing? "BSS_FLUSH 0" can
be issued to any wpa_supplicant interface.

What command are you proposing to redirect here?

I just don't see why P2P_FLUSH would clear BSS table. P2P state and BSS
table are two completely independent data structures.
