    mac80211: clean up beacon interval settings · 57c4d7b4
    Johannes Berg authored
    We currently have two beacon interval configuration knobs:
    hw.conf.beacon_int and vif.bss_info.beacon_int. This is
    rather confusing, even though the former is used when we
    beacon ourselves and the latter when we are associated to
    an AP.
    This just deprecates the hw.conf.beacon_int setting in favour
    of always using vif.bss_info.beacon_int. Since it touches all
    the beaconing IBSS code anyway, we can also add support for
    the cfg80211 IBSS beacon interval configuration easily.
    NOTE: The hw.conf.beacon_int setting is retained for now due
          to drivers still using it -- I couldn't untangle all
          drivers, some are updated in this patch.
