I am trying to get wifi direct working on a laptop with ubuntu 12.04

When I type the command 'iw list' it doesn't show P2P-client or P2P-go under 'supported interface modes.From http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Documentation/iw/replace-iwconfig I found that 'iwconfig' was replaced with 'iw'.Does it mean that my hardware doesn't have support for wifi-direct or is it just the software(drivers) issue? If is it just sofware issue please help me to find the right drivers which support wifi-direct.

Here is the info about my ethernet controller from the output of 'lspci'

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communication Inc. AR242x / AR542x Wreless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)     
06:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8055 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 13)
