2009-03-27nl80211: Event notifications for MLME eventsJouni Malinen
Add new nl80211 event notifications (and a new multicast group, "mlme") for informing user space about received and processed Authentication, (Re)Association Response, Deauthentication, and Disassociation frames in station and IBSS modes (i.e., MLME SAP interface primitives MLME-AUTHENTICATE.confirm, MLME-ASSOCIATE.confirm, MLME-REASSOCIATE.confirm, MLME-DEAUTHENTICATE.indicate, and MLME-DISASSOCIATE.indication). The event data is encapsulated as the 802.11 management frame since we already have the frame in that format and it includes all the needed information. This is the initial step in providing MLME SAP interface for authentication and association with nl80211. In other words, kernel code will act as the MLME and a user space application can control it as the SME. Signed-off-by: Jouni Malinen <j@w1.fi> Signed-off-by: John W.

2009-03-27cfg80211/nl80211: remove usage of CONFIG_NL80211Reinette Chatre
The scan capability added to cfg80211/nl80211 introduced a dependency on nl80211 by cfg80211. We can thus no longer have just cfg80211 without nl80211. Specifically, cfg80211_scan_done() calls nl80211_send_scan_aborted() or nl80211_send_scan_done(). Now we remove the option for user to select nl80211. It will always be compiled if user selects cfg80211. Signed-off-by: Reinette Chatre <reinette.chatre@intel.com> Signed-off-by: John W. Linville <linville@tuxdriver.com>
2009-02-13cfg80211/nl80211: scanning (and mac80211 update to use it)Johannes Berg
This patch adds basic scan capability to cfg80211/nl80211 and changes mac80211 to use it. The BSS list that cfg80211 maintains is made driver-accessible with a private area in each BSS struct, but mac80211 doesn't yet use it. That's another large project.

2008-11-21lib80211: absorb crypto bits from net/ieee80211John W. Linville
These bits are shared already between ipw2x00 and hostap, and could probably be shared both more cleanly and with other drivers. This commit simply relocates the code to lib80211 and adjusts the drivers appropriately. Signed-off-by: John W. Linville <linville@tuxdriver.com>

2008-02-29cfg80211 API for channels/bitrates, mac80211 and driver conversionJohannes Berg
This patch creates new cfg80211 wiphy API for channel and bitrate registration and converts mac80211 and drivers to the new API. The old mac80211 API is completely ripped out. All drivers (except ath5k) are updated to the new API, in many cases I expect that optimisations can be done. Along with the regulatory code I've also ripped out the IEEE80211_HW_DEFAULT_REG_DOMAIN_CONFIGURED flag, I believe it to be unnecessary if the hardware simply gives us whatever channels it wants to support and we then enable/disable them as required, which is pretty much required for travelling. Additionally, the patch adds proper "basic" rate handling for STA mode interface, AP mode interface will have to have new API added to allow userspace to set the basic rate set, currently it'll be empty... However, the basic rate handling will need to be moved to the BSS conf stuff. I do expect there to be bugs in this, especially wrt. transmit power handling where I'm basically clueless about how it should work.

2007-04-25[WIRELESS] cfg80211: New wireless config infrastructure.Johannes Berg
This patch creates the core cfg80211 code along with some sysfs bits. This is a stripped down version to allow mac80211 to function, but doesn't include any configuration yet except for creating and removing virtual interfaces. This patch includes the nl80211 header file but it only contains the interface types which the cfg80211 interface for creating virtual interfaces relies on.
