    cfg80211: properly send NL80211_ATTR_DISCONNECTED_BY_AP in disconnect · 80279fb7
    Johannes Berg authored
    When we disconnect from the AP, drivers call cfg80211_disconnect().
    This doesn't know whether the disconnection was initiated locally
    or by the AP though, which can cause problems with the supplicant,
    for example with WPS. This issue obviously doesn't show up with any
    mac80211 based driver since mac80211 doesn't call this function.
    Fix this by requiring drivers to indicate whether the disconnect is
    locally generated or not. I've tried to update the drivers, but may
    not have gotten the values correct, and some drivers may currently
    not be able to report correct values. In case of doubt I left it at
    false, which is the current behaviour.
    For libertas, make adjustments as indicated by Dan Williams.
