      net: convert multicast list to list_head · 22bedad3
      Jiri Pirko authored
      Converts the list and the core manipulating with it to be the same as uc_list.
      +uses two functions for adding/removing mc address (normal and "global"
       variant) instead of a function parameter.
      +removes dev_mcast.c completely.
      +exposes netdev_hw_addr_list_* macros along with __hw_addr_* functions for
       manipulation with lists on a sandbox (used in bonding and 80211 drivers)

      mac80211: remove get_tx_stats() driver op · 349e6b72
      Kalle Valo authored
      get_tx_stats() driver operation is not currently used anywhere in mac80211
      and there are no plans to use it in the not-so-near future. So it can go
      without anyone missing it.

      mac80211: allow station add/remove to sleep · 34e89507
      Johannes Berg authored
      Many drivers would like to sleep during station
      addition and removal, and currently have a high
      complexity there from not being able to.
      This introduces two new callbacks sta_add() and
      sta_remove() that drivers can implement instead
      of using sta_notify() and that can sleep, and
      the new sta_add() callback is also allowed to
      The reason we didn't do this previously is that
      the IBSS code wants to insert stations from the
      RX path, which is a tasklet, so cannot sleep.
      This patch will keep the station allocation in
      that path, but moves adding the station to the
      driver out of line. Since the addition can now
      fail, we can have IBSS peer structs the driver
      rejected -- in that case we still talk to the
      station but never tell the driver about it in
      the control.sta pointer. If there will ever be
      a driver that has a low limit on the number of
      stations and that cannot talk to any stations
      that are not known to it, we need to do come up
      with a new strategy of handling larger IBSSs,
      maybe quicker expiry or rejecting peers.

      mac80211: remove tasklet enable/disable · ea77f12f
      Johannes Berg authored
      Due to the way the tasklets work in mac80211 there's
      no need to ever disable them.
      However, we need to clear the pending packets when
      taking down the last interface because otherwise
      the tx_pending_tasklet might be queued if the
      driver mucks with the queues (which it shouldn't).
      I've had a situation occasionally with ar9170 in
      which ksoftirq was using 100% CPU time because
      a disabled tasklet was scheduled, and I think that
      was due to ar9170 receiving a packet while the
      tasklet was disabled. That's strange and it really
      should not do that for other reasons, but there's
      no need to waste that much CPU time over it, it
      should just warn instead.

      mac80211: allow configure_filter callback to sleep · 3ac64bee
      Johannes Berg authored
      Over time, a whole bunch of drivers have come up
      with their own scheme to delay the configure_filter
      operation to a workqueue. To be able to simplify
      things, allow configure_filter to sleep, and add
      a new prepare_multicast callback that drivers that
      need the multicast address list implement. This new
      callback must be atomic, but most drivers either
      don't care or just calculate a hash which can be
      done atomically and then uploaded to the hardware
      A cursory look suggests that at76c50x-usb, ar9170,
      mwl8k (which is actually very broken now), rt2x00,
      wl1251, wl1271 and zd1211 should make use of this
      new capability.
