[PATCH 1/1] P2P Client should not issue p2p_find

If you connect wpa_cli to a p2p interface, p2p_find fails.

Page 96 states PB can be trasmitted by any P2P Device (not P2P client or
GO), thus this patch still allows P2P device (ifname==wlan*) to p2p_find,
as p2p_group_interface==NOT_P2P_GROUP_INTERFACE.
This patch only disallows a P2P Client (not a P2P device),
ifname==p2p-wlan* to p2p_find.
