wpa_supplicant: Basic support for PBSS/PCP
PBSS (Personal Basic Service Set) is a new BSS type for DMG networks. It is similar to infrastructure BSS, having an AP-like entity called PCP (PBSS Control Point), but it has few differences. PBSS support is mandatory for IEEE 802.11ad devices. Add a new "pbss" argument to network block. The argument is used in the following scenarios: 1. When network has mode=2 (AP), when pbss flag is set will start as a PCP instead of an AP. 2. When network has mode=0 (station), when pbss flag is set will connect to PCP instead of AP. The function wpa_scan_res_match() was modified to match BSS according to the pbss flag in the network block (wpa_ssid structure). When pbss flag is set it will match only PCPs, and when it is clear it will match only APs. Signed-off-by: Lior David <qca_liord@qca.qualcomm.com>
