Hi Guys
I am working on P2P on CFG80211 driver with full-mac firmware.

As I understand driver_nl80211.c, driver_nl80211.c considers monitor  interface for GO to send and receive a frame.
However currently I do not use mac80211 driver, so we cannot support monitor interface.

I think that we can use p2p interface instead of monitor interface receive mgmt frame if we do not support monitor interface.

P2P is working fine on CFG80211 driver using p2p interface without monitor interface.
In order to make P2P work, I modified codes in driver_nl80211.c.

Do we have to use monitor interface every time ?
