In addition to my previous comments on the proposed changes, please note
that it is already possible to set the passphrase by adding a persistent
group profile separately. As such, it may not be necessary to extend
p2p_group_add for this.

For example:

SET_NETWORK 0 psk "passphrase here"
SET_NETWORK 0 mode 3
SET_NETWORK 0 disabled 2
P2P_GROUP_ADD persistent=0 freq=2412
