    nl80211: Add new WIPHY attribute COVERAGE_CLASS · 81077e82
    Lukáš Turek authored
    The new attribute NL80211_ATTR_WIPHY_COVERAGE_CLASS sets IEEE 802.11
    Coverage Class, which depends on maximum distance of nodes in a
    wireless network. It's required for long distance links (more than a few
    hundred meters).
    The attribute is now ignored by two non-mac80211 drivers, rndis and
    iwmc3200wifi, together with WIPHY_PARAM_RETRY_SHORT and
    WIPHY_PARAM_RETRY_LONG. If it turns out to be a problem, we could split
    set_wiphy_params callback or add new capability bits.
