    mac80211: make master iface not wireless · 133b8226
    Johannes Berg authored
    There's no need to register the master netdev with cfg80211,
    in fact, this is quite dangerous and lead to having to add
    checks for the master interface all over the config handlers.
    This patch removes the "ieee80211_ptr" from the master iface
    in favour of having a small netdev_priv() associated with
    the master interface that stores the ieee80211_local pointer.
    Because of this, a lot of code in the configuration handlers
    can go away. To make this patch easier to verify I have also
    removed a number of wiphy_priv() calls in favour of getting
    the sdata first and then the local pointer from that.
