      iwlwifi: inform user about rfkill state changes · 4c423a2b
      Reinette Chatre authored
      
      
      rfkill state changes are mostly available through debug messages.
      These are significant enough to always make user aware of so
      we turn them into warnings.
      
      Also insert a missing newline in some rfkill related debug message.

      iwlwifi: clarify hardware error message · 58dba728
      Reinette Chatre authored
      
      
      When a hardware error is detected we need to be clear about that
      and not create impression that the microcode is able to deal
      with it.

      iwlwifi: make debug level more user friendly · a562a9dd
      Reinette Chatre authored
      
      
      * Deprecate the "debug50" module parameter used to obtain
        5000 series and up debugging. Replace it with "debug" module
        parameter to match with original driver and be consistent
        between them. The "debug50" module parameter can still be used,
        except that the module parameter is not writable in keeping
        with its previous state. We currently just mark it as "deprecated"
        and do not have it in the feature-removal-schedule. Some more
        cleanup of module parameters needs to be done and can then be
        entered together.
      
      * Only make "debug" module parameters visible if the driver
        is compiled with CONFIG_IWLWIFI_DEBUG. This will eliminate
        a lot of confusion where users think they have set debug flags
        but yet cannot see any debug output.
      
      * Make module parameters writable. This eliminates the need for the
        "debug_level" sysfs file, which can now also be deprecated and
        added to feature-removal-schedule. This file is in significant
        use though with many iwlwifi documents and text referring users
        to it. We can thus not take its removal lightly and keep it around.
      
      With iwlcore shared between iwlagn and iwl3945 we really do not need
      debug module parameters for each but can instead have one debug
      module parameter for the iwlcore module. The same issue is here as
      with the sysfs file - a lot of iwlwifi documentation and text (like
      bug reports) rely on iwlagn and iwl3945 having this module parameter,
      so changing this to a module parameter of iwlcore will have significant
      impact and we do not do this for that reason.
      
      One consequence of this patch is that if a user is running a system
      with both 3945 and later hardware then the setting of the one module
      parameter will affect the value of the other. The likelihood of this
      seems low - and even if this setup is present it does not seem like an
      issue for both modules to run with the same debug level.

      iwlwifi: Handle new firmware file with ucode build number in header · cc0f555d
      Jay Sternberg authored
      
      
      Adding new API version to account for change to ucode file format.  New
      header includes the build number of the ucode.  This build number is the
      SVN revision thus allowing for exact correlation to the code that
      generated it.
      
      The header adds the build number so that older ucode images can also be
      enhanced to include the build in the future.
      
      some cleanup in iwl_read_ucode needed to ensure old header not used and
      reduce unnecessary references through pointer with the data is already
      in heap variable.

      iwl3945: cleanup number of queues settings · 5905a1aa
      Reinette Chatre authored
      
      
      * Rename maximum number of queue (TFD_QUEUE_MAX) to IWL39_NUM_QUEUES to
        be consistent with rest of iwlwifi.
      * Remove unused defines.
      * Fix loops that iterate over number of TX queues to stop when maximum is reached
        (currently it is maximum + 1).
      * Remove queues_num module parameter as it is not used.
