P2P: Add an option to specify group SSID in P2P_CONNECT join case
The new optional ssid=<hexdump> argument to P2P_CONNECT can be used to make P2P Client operations during join-an-existing-group more robust by filtering out scan results based on the SSID in addition to the P2P Device/Interface Address. This can help if the same MAC address has been used in multiple groups recently and the cached scan results may still include an older BSS. Signed-off-by: Jouni Malinen <jouni@qca.qualcomm.com>
