If you would like to receive a more accurate answer regarding how to do this on Ubilinux, then you can contact Emutex with the information found in http://www.emutex.com/contact.
Nevertheless, there is information about how to create a Wi-Fi Direct connection in Yocto. In case you are interested in this option, you can check this guide: https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-109932. It explains how to create a P2P connection between two Edison modules and how to transfer files over it through FTP.
I hope this helps.
