[PATCH] P2P:Fixing the supplicant crash if a group interface has been removed in the event handler itself

We hit a scenario where a PBC overlap was detected in the context of EVENT_SCAN_RESULTS. When in the event handler of do_process_drv_event, an overlap is detected, it will cause GROUP-FORMATION-FAILURE and that will remove the group interface and then corresponding drv pointer from the list global->interfaces will also get removed. (code path wpas_p2p_group_delete->wpa_supplicant_remove_iface -> wpa_supplicant_deinit_iface -> wpa_drv_deinit ->wpa_driver_nl80211_deinit)

In my opinion it is safe to do break, as the event had an ifidx no. and once that has been found, event is completed. There is no need to go for checking other interfaces. Plz let me know if my understanding is wrong.
