      rndis_wlan: Use static const · 22288a58
      Joe Perches authored
      
      
      Using static const generally increases object text and decreases data size.
      It also generally decreases overall object size.
      
         text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
        41757	   2205	   9896	  53858	   d262	drivers/net/wireless/rndis_wlan.o.old
        41653	   2205	   9880	  53738	   d1ea	drivers/net/wireless/rndis_wlan.o.new
      
      Changed functions rndis_set_oid and set_bssid to take const *'s.

      cfg80211/mac80211: better channel handling · f444de05
      Johannes Berg authored
      
      
      Currently (all tested with hwsim) you can do stupid
      things like setting up an AP on a certain channel,
      then adding another virtual interface and making
      that associate on another channel -- this will make
      the beaconing to move channel but obviously without
      the necessary IEs data update.
      
      In order to improve this situation, first make the
      configuration APIs (cfg80211 and nl80211) aware of
      multi-channel operation -- we'll eventually need
      that in the future anyway. There's one userland API
      change and one API addition. The API change is that
      now SET_WIPHY must be called with virtual interface
      index rather than only wiphy index in order to take
      effect for that interface -- luckily all current
      users (hostapd) do that. For monitor interfaces, the
      old setting is preserved, but monitors are always
      slaved to other devices anyway so no guarantees.
      
      The second userland API change is the introduction
      of a per virtual interface SET_CHANNEL command, that
      hostapd should use going forward to make it easier
      to understand what's going on (it can automatically
      detect a kernel with this command).
      
      Other than mac80211, no existing cfg80211 drivers
      are affected by this change because they only allow
      a single virtual interface.
      
      mac80211, however, now needs to be aware that the
      channel settings are per interface now, and needs
      to disallow (for now) real multi-channel operation,
      which is another important part of this patch.
      
      One of the immediate benefits is that you can now
      start hostapd to operate on a hardware that already
      has a connection on another virtual interface, as
      long as you specify the same channel.
      
      Note that two things are left unhandled (this is an
      improvement -- not a complete fix):
      
       * different HT/no-HT modes
      
         currently you could start an HT AP and then
         connect to a non-HT network on the same channel
         which would configure the hardware for no HT;
         that can be fixed fairly easily
      
       * CSA
      
         An AP we're connected to on a virtual interface
         might indicate switching channels, and in that
         case we would follow it, regardless of how many
         other interfaces are operating; this requires
         more effort to fix but is pretty rare after all

      net: convert multicast list to list_head · 22bedad3
      Jiri Pirko authored
      
      
      Converts the list and the core manipulating with it to be the same as uc_list.
      
      +uses two functions for adding/removing mc address (normal and "global"
       variant) instead of a function parameter.
      +removes dev_mcast.c completely.
      +exposes netdev_hw_addr_list_* macros along with __hw_addr_* functions for
       manipulation with lists on a sandbox (used in bonding and 80211 drivers)

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      
        http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py
      
      The script does the followings.
      
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        bloc...
