P2P: Override P2P_PEER group_capab with 0 if no matching BSS entry found
Relying on the group_capab from the P2P peer information can result in improper information on whether the peer is currently operating as a GO. However, there is a known implementation in Android that does this. To reduce issues from this misuse in upper layer to try to determine whether a specific peer is operationg a group, override the group_capab value in P2P_PEER output with 0 if there are no BSS entries with the peer P2P Device as a GO. This is not a perfect information since there may not have been a recent scan on all channels, but this results in less issues than trying to decide between new group formation and joining an existing group based on stale or incorrect information. Since no upper layer application is really supposed to use the group_capab field value in P2P_PEER command, this change should not cause any impact for properly design components and the possibility of regressions is limited to cases that are already known to work incorrectly in number of identifiable cases.
