    nl80211 : Add support for configuring MFP · dc6382ce
    Jouni Malinen authored
    NL80211_CMD_ASSOCIATE request must be able to indicate whether
    management frame protection (IEEE 802.11w) is being used. mac80211 was
    able to use MFP in client mode only with WEXT, but the new
    NL80211_ATTR_USE_MFP attribute will allow this to be done with
    nl80211, too.
    Since we are currently using nl80211 for MFP only with drivers that
    use user space SME, only MFP disabled and required values are
    used. However, the NL80211_ATTR_USE_MFP attribute is an enum that can
    be extended with MFP optional in the future, if that is needed with
    some drivers (e.g., if the RSN IE is generated by the driver).
