[PATCH 4/4] wpa_supplicant: Use correct interface type when creating P2P interface

From: Avrahams Stern <avraham.stern at intel.com>

When starting ASP provisioning with connection capability set to NEW,
don't create the pending P2P interface as a GO interface because
Go negotiation will determine which side will be the GO and it is
possible that eventually this interface will become the client.
In this case, when the P2P client is started it will start scanning
and do other station specific operations while the interface type
is AP.

Instead, use type WPA_IF_P2P_GROUP when creating the interface which
means the interface type will be determined later.
