    In order to support a P2P device abstraction and
    Bluetooth high-speed AMPs, we need to have a way
    to identify virtual interfaces that don't have a
    netdev associated.
    
    Do this by adding a NL80211_ATTR_WDEV attribute
    to identify a wdev which may or may not also be
    a netdev.
    
    To simplify things, use a 64-bit value with the
    high 32 bits being the wiphy index for this new
    wdev identifier in the nl80211 API.
