I tried to find such centralization place with no luck. Maybe I missed it.
It follows what have been done already. If you take a look at dbus
they will all verify that the dbus iface is up (so basically that the
DBusConnection is set).
Same for many object path on some parts etc...
Anyway, since the P2P mgmt interface is not really differentiated from
though there are huge difference (it's not a netdev on first place),
it's instantiated as a
wpa_supplicant struct, which makes such notification verification hard
Afaik, unless a big rewrite, this is not possible.
Either we inhibit those notifications for the P2P dev from the code that
the dbus handlers or the notification code itself. I choose the later one.
