Introduction
mac80211_hwsim is a Linux kernel module that can be used to simulate
arbitrary number of IEEE 802.11 radios for mac80211 on a single
device. It can be used to test most of the mac80211 functionality and
user space tools (e.g., hostapd and wpa_supplicant) in a way that
matches very closely with the normal case of using real WLAN
hardware. From the mac80211 view point, mac80211_hwsim is yet another
hardware driver, i.e., no changes to mac80211 are needed to use this
testing tool.

mac80211_hwsim kernel module has a parameter 'radios' that can be used
to select how many radios are simulates (default 2). This allows
to select how many radios are simulated (default 2). This allows
configuration of both very simply setups (e.g., just a single access
point and a station) or large scale tests (multiple access points with
hundreds of stations).
