iwlagn did get support for p2p (landed 2011-07-23, commit c6baf7fb,
kernel v3.2), but it requires a firmware update to ucode API level 6 for
the 1000 devices.  Without dmesg output of the driver loading to see
what ucode revision he's got, it's hard to know whether the firmware
supports it or not.  Plus, given he mentioned kernel 3.0, it's unlikely
that his kernel has the right support unless it was backported by
Canonical.
