    cfg80211: use reassociation when possible · f401a6f7
    Johannes Berg authored
    With the move of everything related to the SME from
    mac80211 to cfg80211, we lost the ability to send
    reassociation frames. This adds them back, but only
    for wireless extensions. With the userspace SME, it
    shall control assoc vs. reassoc (it already can do
    so with the nl80211 interface).
    I haven't touched the connect() implementation, so
    it is not possible to reassociate with the nl80211
    connect primitive. I think that should be done with
    the NL80211_CMD_ROAM command, but we'll have to see
    how that can be handled in the future, especially
    with fullmac chips.
    This patch addresses only the immediate regression
    we had in mac80211, which previously sent reassoc.
