I'm perhaps now missing something essential with wpa_supplicant, but
isn't this information supposed to already be part of "Capabilities" in
wpas_dbus_interface_properties[] array? I noticed code checking for
WPA_DRIVER_FLAGS_AP and WPA_DRIVER_FLAGS_P2P_CAPABLE in
wpas_dbus_getter_capabilities() in
wpa_supplicant/dbus/dbus_new_handlers.c, with the assumption that they
are returned to the caller in the D-Bus method call return.


Cheers,
