wpa_supplicant: Add a configuration file for the P2P_DEVICE parameters
Add an option to specify a configuration file that can be used to hold the P2P_DEVICE configuration parameters. If this option is not used, the P2P_DEVICE configuration parameters will be read from interface configuration file. Note that it is advised to use this option in some cases such as: If a P2P_DEVICE is supported by the driver, the wpa_supplicant creates a dedicated P2P Device interface, where the configuration file used for the main interface is used. As a consequence, if the configuration file includes network definition etc., the wpa_supplicant will try to perform station specific flows on the P2P Device interface which will fail. If a P2P_DEVICE is supported by the driver and update_config is used, the P2P Device configuration data will override the main interface configuration data.
