      cfg80211: Add API to change the indoor regulatory setting · 05050753
      Ilan peer authored
      
      
      Previously, the indoor setting configuration assumed that as
      long as a station interface is connected, the indoor environment
      setting does not change. However, this assumption is problematic
      as:
      
      - It is possible that a station interface is connected to a mobile
        AP, e.g., softAP or a P2P GO, where it is possible that both the
        station and the mobile AP move out of the indoor environment making
        the indoor setting invalid. In such a case, user space has no way to
        invalidate the setting.
      - A station interface disconnection does not necessarily imply that
        the device is no longer operating in an indoor environment, e.g.,
        it is possible that the station interface is roaming but is still
        stays indoor.
      
      To handle the above, extend the indoor configuration API to allow
      user space to indicate a change of indoor settings, and allow it to
      indicate weather it controls the indoor setting, such that:
      
      1. If the user space process explicitly indicates that it is going
         to control the indoor setting, do not clear the indoor setting
         internally, unless the socket is released. The user space process
         should use the NL80211_ATTR_SOCKET_OWNER attribute in the command
         to state that it is going to control the indoor setting.
      2. Reset the indoor setting when restoring the regulatory settings in
         case it is not owned by a user space process.
      
      Based on the above, a user space tool that continuously monitors the
      indoor settings, i.e., tracking power setting, location etc., can
      indicate environment changes to the regulatory core.
      
      It should be noted that currently user space is the only provided mechanism
      used to hint to the regulatory core over the indoor/outdoor environment --
      while the country IEs do have an environment setting this has been completely
      ignored by the regulatory core by design for a while now since country IEs
      typically can contain bogus data.

      nl80211: prohibit mixing 'any' and regular wowlan triggers · 98fc4386
      Johannes Berg authored
      
      
      If the device supports waking up on 'any' signal - i.e. it continues
      operating as usual and wakes up the host on pretty much anything that
      happens, then it makes no sense to also configure the more restricted
      WoWLAN mode where the device operates more autonomously but also in a
      more restricted fashion.
      
      Currently only cw2100 supports both 'any' and other triggers, but it
      seems to be broken as it doesn't configure anything to the device, so
      we can't currently get into a situation where both even can correctly
      be configured. This is about to change (Intel devices are going to
      support both and have different behaviour depending on configuration)
      so make sure the conflicting modes cannot be configured.
      
      (It seems that cw2100 advertises 'any' and 'disconnect' as a means of
      saying that's what it will always do, but that isn't really the way
      this API was meant to be used nor does it actually mean anything as
      'any' always implies 'disconnect' already, and the driver doesn't
      change device configuration in any way depending on the settings.)

      nl/mac80211: allow zero plink timeout to disable STA expiration · 31f909a2
      Masashi Honma authored
      
      
      Both wpa_supplicant and mac80211 have and inactivity timer. By default
      wpa_supplicant will be timed out in 5 minutes and mac80211's it is 30
      minutes. If wpa_supplicant uses a longer timer than mac80211, it will
      get unexpected disconnection by mac80211.
      
      Using 0xffffffff instead as the configured value could solve this w/o
      changing the code, but due to integer overflow in the expression used
      this doesn't work. The expression is:
      
      (current jiffies) > (frame Rx jiffies + NL80211_MESHCONF_PLINK_TIMEOUT * 250)
      
      On 32bit system, the right side would overflow and be a very small
      value if NL80211_MESHCONF_PLINK_TIMEOUT is sufficiently large,
      causing unexpectedly early disconnections.
      
      Instead allow disabling the inactivity timer to avoid this situation,
      by passing the (previously invalid and useless) value 0.

      cfg80211: change bandwidth reporting to explicit field · b51f3bee
      Johannes Berg authored
      
      
      For some reason, we made the bandwidth separate flags, which
      is rather confusing - a single rate cannot have different
      bandwidths at the same time.
      
      Change this to no longer be flags but use a separate field
      for the bandwidth ('bw') instead.
      
      While at it, add support for 5 and 10 MHz rates - these are
      reported as regular legacy rates with their real bitrate,
      but tagged as 5/10 now to make it easier to distinguish them.
      
      In the nl80211 API, the flags are preserved, but the code
      now can also clearly only set a single one of the flags.

      cfg80211: remove 80+80 MHz rate reporting · 97d910d0
      Johannes Berg authored
      
      
      These rates are treated the same as 160 MHz in the spec, so
      it makes no sense to distinguish them. As no driver uses them
      yet, this is also not a problem, just remove them.
      
      In the userspace API the field remains reserved to preserve
      API and ABI.

      cfg80211: 802.11p OCB mode handling · 6e0bd6c3
      Rostislav Lisovy authored
      
      
      This patch adds new iface type (NL80211_IFTYPE_OCB) representing
      the OCB (Outside the Context of a BSS) mode.
      When establishing a connection to the network a cfg80211_join_ocb
      function is called (particular nl80211_command is added as well).
      A mandatory parameters during the ocb_join operation are 'center
      frequency' and 'channel width (5/10 MHz)'.
      
      Changes done in mac80211 are minimal possible required to avoid
      many warnings (warning: enumeration value 'NL80211_IFTYPE_OCB'
      not handled in switch) during compilation. Full functionality
      (where needed) is added in the following patch.

      cfg80211: make WMM TSPEC support flag an nl80211 feature flag · 723e73ac
      Johannes Berg authored
      
      
      During the review of the corresponding wpa_supplicant patches we
      noticed that the only way for it to detect that this functionality
      is supported currently is to check for the command support. This
      can be misleading though, as the command was also designed to, in
      the future, support pure 802.11 TSPECs.
      
      Expose the WMM-TSPEC feature flag to nl80211 so later we can also
      expose an 802.11-TSPEC feature flag (if needed) to differentiate
      the two cases.
      
      Note: this change isn't needed in 3.18 as there's no driver there
      yet that supports the functionality at all.
