    nl80211: report BSS status · 48ab905d
    Johannes Berg authored
    When connected to a BSS, or joined to an IBSS, we'll want
    to know in userspace without using wireless extensions, so
    report the BSS status in the BSS list. Userspace can query
    the BSS list, display all the information and retrieve the
    station information as well.
    For example (from hwsim):
    $ iw dev wlan1 scan dump
    BSS 02:00:00:00:00:00 (on wlan1) -- associated
    	freq: 2462
    	beacon interval: 100
    	capability: ESS ShortSlotTime (0x0401)
    	signal: -50.00 dBm
    	SSID: j
    	Supported rates: 1.0* 2.0* 5.5* 11.0* 6.0 9.0 12.0 18.0
    	DS Paramater set: channel 11
    	ERP: <no flags>
    	Extended supported rates: 24.0 36.0 48.0 54.0
