bool "Old wireless static regulatory definitions"
- default y
+ default n
This option enables the old static regulatory information
- and uses it within the new framework. This is available
- temporarily as an option to help prevent immediate issues
- due to the switch to the new regulatory framework which
- does require a new userspace application which has the
- database of regulatory information (CRDA) and another for
- setting regulatory domains (iw).
- For more information see:
- It is important to note though that if you *do* have CRDA present
- and if this option is enabled CRDA *will* be called to update the
- regulatory domain (for US and JP only). Support for letting the user
- set the regulatory domain through iw is also supported. This option
- mainly exists to leave around for a kernel release some old static
- regulatory domains that were defined and to keep around the old
- ieee80211_regdom module parameter. This is being phased out and you
- should stop using them ASAP.
- Note: You will need CRDA if you want 802.11d support
- Say Y unless you have installed a new userspace application.
- Also say Y if have one currently depending on the ieee80211_regdom
- module parameter and cannot port it to use the new userspace
+ and uses it within the new framework. This option is available
+ for historical reasons and it is advised to leave it off.
+ For details see:
+ Say N and if you say Y, please tell us why. The default is N.
