      [PATCH] WE-21 support (core API) · baef1865
      John W. Linville authored
      This is version 21 of the Wireless Extensions. Changelog :
      	o finishes migrating the ESSID API (remove the +1)
      	o netdev->get_wireless_stats is no more
      	o long/short retry
      
      This is a redacted version of a patch originally submitted by Jean
      Tourrilhes.  I removed most of the additions, in order to minimize
      future support requirements for nl80211 (or other WE successor).

      [PATCH] WE-20 for kernel 2.6.16 · 711e2c33
      Jean Tourrilhes authored
      	This is version 20 of the Wireless Extensions. This is the
      completion of the RtNetlink work I started early 2004, it enables the
      full Wireless Extension API over RtNetlink.
      
      	Few comments on the patch :
      	o totally driver transparent, no change in drivers needed.
      	o iwevent were already RtNetlink based since they were created
      (around 2.5.7). This adds all the regular SET and GET requests over
      RtNetlink, using the exact same mechanism and data format as iwevents.
      	o This is a Kconfig option, as currently most people have no
      need for it. Surprisingly, patch is actually small and well
      encapsulated.
      	o Tested on SMP, attention as been paid to make it 64 bits clean.
      	o Code do probably too many checks and could be further
      optimised, but better safe than sorry.
      	o RtNetlink based version of the Wireless Tools available on
      my web page for people inclined to try out this stuff.
      
      	I would also like to thank Alexey Kuznetsov for his helpful
      suggestions to make this patch better.

      [PATCH] WE-19 for kernel 2.6.13 · 6582c164
      Jean Tourrilhes authored
      	Hi Jeff,
      
      	This is version 19 of the Wireless Extensions. It was supposed
      to be the fallback of the WPA API changes, but people seem quite happy
      about it (especially Jouni), so the patch is rather small.
      	The patch has been fully tested with 2.6.13 and various
      wireless drivers, and is in its final version. Would you mind pushing
      that into Linus's kernel so that the driver and the apps can take
      advantage ot it ?
      
      	It includes :
      	o iwstat improvement (explicit dBm). This is the result of
      long discussions with Dan Williams, the authors of
      NetworkManager. Thanks to him for all the fruitful feedback.
      	o remove pointer from event stream. I was not totally sure if
      this pointer was 32-64 bits clean, so I'd rather remove it and be at
      peace with it.
      	o remove linux header from wireless.h. This has long been
      requested by people writting user space apps, now it's done, and it
      was not even painful.
      	o final deprecation of spy_offset. You did not like it, it's
      now gone for good.
      	o Start deprecating dev->get_wireless_stats -> debloat netdev
      	o Add "check" version of event macros for ieee802.11
      stack. Jiri Benc doesn't like the current macros, we aim to please ;-)
      	All those changes, except the last one, have been bit-roting on
      my web pages for a while...
      
      	Patches for most kernel drivers will follow. Patches for the
      Orinoco and the HostAP drivers have been sent to their respective
      maintainers.
      
      	Have fun...
      
      	Jean

      [PATCH] Wireless Extensions 18 (aka WPA) · fff9cfd9
      authored
        
              This is version 18 of the Wireless Extensions. The main change
        is that it adds all the necessary APIs for WPA and WPA2 support. This
        work was entirely done by Jouni Malinen, so let's thank him for both
        his hard work and deep expertise on the subject ;-)
              This APIs obviously doesn't do much by itself and works in
        concert with driver support (Jouni already sent you the HostAP
        changes) and userspace (Jouni is updating wpa_supplicant). This is
        also orthogonal with the ongoing work on in-kernel IEEE support (but
        potentially useful).
              The patch is attached, tested with 2.6.11. Normally, I would
        ask you to push that directly in the kernel (99% of the patch has been
        on my web page for ages and it does not affect non-WPA stuff), but
        Jouni convinced me that it should bake a few weeks in wireless-2.6
        first, so that other driver maintainers can get up to speed with it.

      Linux-2.6.12-rc2 · 1da177e4
      Linus Torvalds authored
      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
