    cfg80211: Allow a scan request for a specific BSSID · 818965d3

    This allows scans for a specific BSSID to be optimized by the user space
    application by requesting the driver to set the Probe Request frame
    BSSID field (Address 3) to the specified BSSID instead of the wildcard
    BSSID. This prevents other APs from replying which reduces airtime need
    and latency in getting the response from the target AP through.
    
    This is an optimization and as such, it is acceptable for some of the
    drivers not to support the mechanism. If not supported, the wildcard
    BSSID will be used and more responses may be received.
