cfg80211/nl80211: Indicate roaming feature capability to userspace.
When the rssi of the current AP drops, both wpa_supplicant and the firmware may do a background scan to find a better AP and try to associate. Since firmware based roaming is faster, inform wpa_supplicant to avoid roaming and let the firmware decide to roam if necessary. For fullmac drivers like ath6kl, it is just enough to provide the ESSID and the firmware will decide on the BSSID. Since it is not possible to do pre-auth during roaming for fullmac drivers, the wpa_supplicant needs to completely disconnect with the old AP and reconnect with the new AP. This consumes lot of time and it is better to leave the roaming decision to the firmware. Signed-off-by: Vivek Natarajan <firstname.lastname@example.org> Signed-off-by: John W.
