      rt2x00: Rate structure overhaul · 70e2fed4
      Ivo van Doorn authored
      
      
      Recent changes to the rate structure registration broke rt2x00,
      the hw_value was reduced from 32bits to 16bits while rt2x00 used
      the full 32bits. However the way rt2x00 used the value was inflexible
      and needed to be changed anyway.
      
      This patch creates a array containing information for each rate,
      the hw_value passed to mac80211 is the index value for that array
      including a field to indicate if short preamble should be enabled.

      cfg80211 API for channels/bitrates, mac80211 and driver conversion · 8318d78a
      Johannes Berg authored
      
      
      This patch creates new cfg80211 wiphy API for channel and bitrate
      registration and converts mac80211 and drivers to the new API. The
      old mac80211 API is completely ripped out. All drivers (except ath5k)
      are updated to the new API, in many cases I expect that optimisations
      can be done.
      
      Along with the regulatory code I've also ripped out the
      IEEE80211_HW_DEFAULT_REG_DOMAIN_CONFIGURED flag, I believe it to be
      unnecessary if the hardware simply gives us whatever channels it wants
      to support and we then enable/disable them as required, which is pretty
      much required for travelling.
      
      Additionally, the patch adds proper "basic" rate handling for STA
      mode interface, AP mode interface will have to have new API added
      to allow userspace to set the basic rate set, currently it'll be
      empty... However, the basic rate handling will need to be moved to
      the BSS conf stuff.
      
      I do expect there to be bugs in this, especially wrt. transmit
      power handling where I'm basically clueless about how it should work.

      rt2x00: Add per-interface structure · 6bb40dd1
      Ivo van Doorn authored
      
      
      Rework the interface handling. Delete the interface structure
      and replace it with a per-interface structure. This changes the
      way rt2x00 handles the active interface drastically.
      
      Copy ieee80211_bss_conf to the this rt2x00_intf structure during
      the bss_info_changed() callback function. This will allow us to
      reference it later, and removes the requirement for the device flag
      SHORT_PREAMBLE flag which is interface specific.
      
      Drivers receive the option to give the maximum number of virtual
      interfaces the device can handle. Virtual interface support:
      rt2400pci: 1 sta or 1 ap, * monitor interfaces
      rt2500pci: 1 sta or 1 ap, * monitor interfaces
      rt2500usb: 1 sta or 1 ap, * monitor interfaces
      rt61pci: 1 sta or 4 ap, * monitor interfaces
      rt73usb: 1 sta or 4 ap, * monitor interfaces
      
      At the moment none of the drivers support AP and STA interfaces
      simultaneously, this is a hardware limitation so future support
      will be very unlikely.
      
      Each interface structure receives its dedicated beacon entry,
      with this we can easily work with beaconing while multiple master
      mode interfaces are currently active.
      
      The configuration handlers for the MAC, BSSID and type are
      often called together since they all belong to the interface
      configuration. Merge the 3 configuration calls and cleanup
      the API between rt2x00lib and the drivers. While we are cleaning
      up the interface configuration anyway, we might as well clean up
      the configuration handler as well.
