Trying to get an idea of the hwsim issues. I think I got the test 
environment pretty much set up, but I do get this:

Command '['../../wlantest/wlantest_cli', 'get_tdls_counter', 
'setup_conf_ok', '....] returned non-zero exit status 255
FAIL test_autogo_tdls

passed 1 test case(s) 

failed tests: ['test_autogo', 'test_autogo_tdls']

Is there a compilation flag missing in wlantest_cli?
