+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_FIND P2P_FIND
+
+Start P2P device discovery. Optional parameter can be used to specify
+the duration for the discovery in seconds (e.g., "P2P_FIND 5"). If the
+duration is not specified, discovery will be started for indefinite
+time, i.e., until it is terminated by P2P_STOP_FIND or P2P_CONNECT (to
+start group formation with a discovered peer).
+
+The default search type is to first run a full scan of all channels
+and then continue scanning only social channels (1, 6, 11). This
+behavior can be changed by specifying a different search type: social
+(e.g., "P2P_FIND 5 type=social") will skip the initial full scan and
+only search social channels; progressive (e.g., "P2P_FIND
+type=progressive") starts with a full scan and then searches
+progressively through all channels one channel at the time with the
+social channel scans. Progressive device discovery can be used to find
+new groups (and groups that were not found during the initial scan,
+e.g., due to the GO being asleep) over time without adding
+considerable extra delay for every Search state round.
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_STOP_FIND P2P_STOP_FIND
+
+Stop ongoing P2P device discovery or other operation (connect, listen
+mode).
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_CONNECT P2P_CONNECT
+
+Start P2P group formation with a discovered P2P peer. This includes
+group owner negotiation, group interface setup, provisioning, and
+establishing data connection.
+
+P2P_CONNECT <peer device address> <pbc|pin|PIN#>
+[label|display|keypad] [persistent] [join|auth] [go_intent=<0..15>]
+
+Start P2P group formation with a discovered P2P peer. This includes
+optional group owner negotiation, group interface setup, provisioning,
+and establishing data connection.
+
+The <pbc|pin|PIN#> parameter specifies the WPS provisioning
+method. "pbc" string starts pushbutton method, "pin" string start PIN
+method using an automatically generated PIN (which will be returned as
+the command return code), PIN# means that a pre-selected PIN can be
+used (e.g., 12345670). [label|display|keypad] is used with PIN method
+to specify which PIN is used (label=PIN from local label,
+display=dynamically generated random PIN from local display,
+keypad=PIN entered from peer device label or display). "persistent"
+parameter can be used to request a persistent group to be formed.
+
+"join" indicates that this is a command to join an existing group as a
+client. It skips the GO Negotiation part.
+
+"auth" indicates that the WPS parameters are authorized for the peer
+device without actually starting GO Negotiation (i.e., the peer is
+expected to initiate GO Negotiation). This is mainly for testing
+purposes.
+
+The optional "go_intent" parameter can be used to override the default
+GO Intent value.
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_LISTEN P2P_LISTEN
+
+Start Listen-only state. Optional parameter can be used to specify the
+duration for the Listen operation in seconds. This command may not
+be of that much use during normal operations and is mainly designed
+for testing. It can also be used to keep the device discoverable
+without having to maintain a group.
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_GROUP_REMOVE P2P_GROUP_REMOVE
+
+Terminate a P2P group. If a new virtual network interface was used for
+the group, it will also be removed. The network interface name of the
+group interface is used as a parameter for this command.
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_GROUP_ADD P2P_GROUP_ADD
+
+Set up a P2P group owner manually (i.e., without group owner
+negotiation with a specific peer). This is also known as autonomous
+GO. Optional persistent=<network id> can be used to specify restart of
+a persistent group.
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_PROV_DISC P2P_PROV_DISC
+
+Send P2P provision discovery request to the specified peer. The
+parameters for this command are the P2P device address of the peer and
+the desired configuration method. For example, "P2P_PROV_DISC
+02:01:02:03:04:05 display" would request the peer to display a PIN for
+us and "P2P_PROV_DISC 02:01:02:03:04:05 keypad" would request the peer
+to enter a PIN that we display.
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_GET_PASSPHRASE P2P_GET_PASSPHRASE
+
+Get the passphrase for a group (only available when acting as a GO).
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_SERV_DISC_REQ P2P_SERV_DISC_REQ
+
+Schedule a P2P service discovery request. The parameters for this
+command are the device address of the peer device (or 00:00:00:00:00:00
+for wildcard query that is sent to every discovered P2P peer that
+supports service discovery) and P2P Service Query TLV(s) as hexdump.
+For example, "P2P_SERV_DISC_REQ 00:00:00:00:00:00 02000001" schedules
+a request for listing all supported service discovery protocols and
+requests this to be sent to all discovered peers. The pending requests
+are sent during device discovery (see \ref ctrl_iface_P2P_FIND).
+
+This command returns an identifier for the pending query (e.g.,
+"1f77628") that can be used to cancel the request. Directed requests
+will be automatically removed when the specified peer has replied to
+it.
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_SERV_DISC_CANCEL_REQ P2P_SERV_DISC_CANCEL_REQ
+
+Cancel a pending P2P service discovery request. This command takes a
+single parameter: identifier for the pending query (the value returned
+by \ref ctrl_iface_P2P_SERV_DISC_REQ), e.g.,
+"P2P_SERV_DISC_CANCEL_REQ 1f77628".
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_SERV_DISC_RESP P2P_SERV_DISC_RESP
+
+Reply to a service discovery query. This command takes following
+parameters: frequency in MHz, destination address, dialog token,
+response TLV(s). The first three parameters are copied from the
+request event. For example,
+"P2P_SERV_DISC_RESP 2437 02:40:61:c2:f3:b7 1 0300000101".
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_SERVICE_UPDATE P2P_SERVICE_UPDATE
+
+Indicate that local services have changed. This is used to increment
+the P2P service indicator value so that peers know when previously
+cached information may have changed.
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_SERV_DISC_EXTERNAL P2P_SERV_DISC_EXTERNAL
+
+Configure external processing of P2P service requests: 0 (default) =
+no external processing of requests (i.e., internal code will reject
+each request), 1 = external processing of requests (external program
+is responsible for replying to service discovery requests with
+\ref ctrl_iface_P2P_SERV_DISC_RESP).
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_REJECT P2P_REJECT
+
+Reject connection attempt from a peer (specified with a device
+address). This is a mechanism to reject a pending GO Negotiation with
+a peer and request to automatically block any further connection or
+discovery of the peer.
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_INVITE P2P_INVITE
+
+Invite a peer to join a group or to (re)start a persistent group.
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_PEER P2P_PEER
+
+Fetch information about a discovered peer. This command takes in an
+argument specifying which peer to select: P2P Device Address of the
+peer, "FIRST" to indicate the first peer in the list, or "NEXT-<P2P
+Device Address>" to indicate the entry following the specified peer
+(to allow for iterating through the list).
+
+
+\subsection ctrl_iface_P2P_EXT_LISTEN P2P_EXT_LISTEN
+
+Enable/disable extended listen timing. Without parameters, this
+command disables extended listen timing. When enabling the feature,
+two parameters are used: availibility period and availability interval
+(both in milliseconds and with range of 1-65535).
