Thanks. I applied patches 1, 5, 8-15, 18-24. Patch 16 ('tests: Use
global control interface in test_nfc_p2p', I'd assume) did not make it
to the mailing list. Patches 2-4, 6-7, and 17 need changes as indicated
(or more justification to make me understand the reasoning for couple of
the items).

As a side note, it would be good to add new test cases that use P2P
Device enabled for areas that do not get full test coverage today. I
understand that this can be done by modifying support_p2p_device=0
parameter in the scripts, but that does not get executed automatically
at least in my test setups and running the full set of tests twice with
two values for that would result in significant duplication of testing,
so that's not going to happen either due to the extra time it would
