      [PATCH] mac80211: improved 802.11g CTS protection · 63fc33ce
      Daniel Drake authored
      
      
      Currently, CTS protection is partially implemented twice:
       1. via prism2 ioctls, only used by hostapd
       2. via STA beacon parsing, recorded in sta.use_protection but never used
          (other than printed in debugfs)
      
      Protection control should be implemented on a per-subif basis. For example,
      a single physical device may be running a soft AP on one channel, and a STA
      on another. The AP interface should use protection based on what hostapd told
      it, and the STA interface should use protection based on beacon parsing.
      These should operate independantly: one subif using protection should not
      influence the other.
      
      To implement this, I moved the use_protection flag into ieee80211_sub_if_data
      and removed the device-global cts_protect_erp_frames flag.
      
      I also made the PRISM2_PARAM_CTS_PROTECT_ERP_FRAMES write operation only
      available for AP interfaces, to avoid any possibility of the user messing with
      the behaviour of a STA.

      [PATCH] mac80211: ERP IE handling improvements · 5628221c
      Daniel Drake authored
      
      
      The "protection needed" flag is currently parsed out of the ERP IE in
      beacons. This patch allows the ERP IE to be available at assocation time
      and causes the appropriate actions to be performed earlier.
      
      It is slightly complicated by the fact that most APs don't include the
      ERP IE in association responses. To work around this, we store ERP
      values in the ieee80211_sta_bss structure.
      
      Also added some WLAN_ERP defines for use by upcoming patches.

      [PATCH] mac80211: conserve stack space due to padding · 5558235c
      Johannes Berg authored
      
      
      This patch reorders some fields in struct ieee802_11_elems to save 17*7
      or 17*3 bytes (on 64/32-bit machines respectively) stack space in a few
      functions.
