Are both ends running wpa_supplicant with user_mpm = 1 and same config

My guess is kernel is rejecting the probe response/beacon because the peer
candidate doesn't match the local node config.  That's why we get a scan
result without a corresponding peer candidate event.  Any chance you could
send a pcap (offlist) that I can look at?
