2009-06-10rfkill: remove input KconfigJohannes Berg
Now that we added the ioctl, there's no need to ask the user to configure this. We will keep it enabled for now, and eventually swap the default to n. Also let embedded users select it only if they need it. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes@sipsolutions.net> Signed-off-by: John W. Linville <linville@tuxdriver.com>
2009-06-03rfkill: create useful userspace interfaceJohannes Berg
The new code added by this patch will make rfkill create a misc character device /dev/rfkill that userspace can use to control rfkill soft blocks and get status of devices as well as events when the status changes. Using it is very simple -- when you open it you can read a number of times to get the initial state, and every further read blocks (you can poll) on getting the next event from the kernel. The same structure you read is also used when writing to it to change the soft block of a given device, all devices of a given type, or all devices. This also makes CONFIG_RFKILL_INPUT selectable again in order to be able to test without it present since its functionality can now be replaced by userspace entirely and distros and users may not want the input part of rfkill interfering with their userspace code. We will also write a userspace daemon to handle all that and consequently add the input code to the feature removal schedule. In order to have rfkilld support both kernels with and without CONFIG_RFKILL_INPUT (or new kernels after its eventual removal) we also add an ioctl (that only exists if rfkill-input is present) to disable rfkill-input. It is not very efficient, but at least gives the correct behaviour in all cases.

2009-06-03rfkill: rewriteJohannes Berg
This patch completely rewrites the rfkill core to address the following deficiencies: * all rfkill drivers need to implement polling where necessary rather than having one central implementation * updating the rfkill state cannot be done from arbitrary contexts, forcing drivers to use schedule_work and requiring lots of code * rfkill drivers need to keep track of soft/hard blocked internally -- the core should do this * the rfkill API has many unexpected quirks, for example being asymmetric wrt. alloc/free and register/unregister * rfkill can call back into a driver from within a function the driver called -- this is prone to deadlocks and generally should be avoided * rfkill-input pointlessly is a separate module * drivers need to #ifdef rfkill functions (unless they want to depend on or select RFKILL) -- rfkill should provide inlines that do nothing if it isn't compiled in * the rfkill structure is not opaque -- drivers need to initialise it correctly (lots of sanity checking code required) -- instead force drivers to pass the right variables to rfkill_alloc() * the documentation is hard to read because it always assumes the reader is completely clueless and contains way TOO MANY CAPS * the rfkill code needlessly uses a lot of locks and atomic operations in locked sections * fix LED trigger to actually change the LED when the radio state changes -- this wasn't done before Tested-by: Alan Jenkins <alan-jenkins@tuffmail.co.uk> Signed-off-by: Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@hmh.eng.br> [thinkpad] Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes@sipsolutions.net> Signed-off-by: John W.

2007-10-10[RFKILL]: Remove IRDAIvo van Doorn
As Dmitry pointed out earlier, rfkill-input.c doesn't support irda because there are no users and we shouldn't add unrequired KEY_ defines. However, RFKILL_TYPE_IRDA was defined in the rfkill.h header file and would confuse people about whether it is implemented or not. This patch removes IRDA support completely, so it can be added whenever a driver wants the feature. Signed-off-by: Ivo van Doorn <IvDoorn@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
