Where does this value of 9 TU come from? The P2P spec states that
CTWindow should be at least 10 TU for the GO to be discoverable, so
making 9 as the default sounds quite strange. I'm replacing this with 0
(i.e., do not configure CTWindow) to maintain previous behavior and
avoid any potential issues with drivers that might not be prepared for
the value to be configured in the first place. If you want to use 9 TU
for some reason, you can set that in the configuration.
