      Added cmdlog in non-debug systems. · f6c5cb7c
      James Ketrenos authored
      You can now specify via the module parameter 'cmdlog' to allocate a
      ring buffer for caching host commands sent to the firmware. They can
      then be dumped at any time via the sysfs entry 'cmd_log'

      Switched firmware error dumping so that it will capture a log available · b39860c6
      James Ketrenos authored
      via sysfs even if debugging disabled.  When a firmware error is
      captured, it will be dumped to the kernel log (if debug enabled) and
      captured in memory to be retrieved via sysfs.
      If an error has already been captured, subsequent errors will be
      The existing error can be cleared by writing to the error log entry.

      [bug 667] Fix the notorious "No space for Tx" bug. · d8bad6df
      Zhu Yi authored
      We send SYSTEM_CONFIG command after the TGI_KEY command if hardware
      encryption is enabled. It sometimes causes a firmware stall (firmware
      doesn't respond to any request) and finally bungs up the Tx send queue.
      The solution is to send SYSTEM_CONFIG command in the post association
      stage from a workqueue.

      Catch ipw2200 up to equivelancy with v1.0.4 · b095c381
      James Ketrenos authored
      * Fixed #627 problem with open APs not working with wpa_supplicant
      * Fixed #632 problem with 'txpower auto' setting power incorrectly (thanks
        to Kai Groner)
      * Fixed #634 problem with 'iwconfig eth1 frag 0' hanging the shell
      * Fixed problem with adapter not fully powering off during suspend to RAM or
        when module unloaded.
      * Fixed #645 problem with turning fixed rates off not taking effect until
        you reload the driver
      * Fixed problem with firmware restart if wpa_supplicant was used to set a key
        that wasn't exactly 5 or 13 bytes in length.
      * Fixed #623 Added iwpriv sw_reset extension to reset sw parameters
      * Added managment frame export to user space with frame statistics
      * Fixed #652 Modified the driver to load the EEPROM data even if RF KILL is
        active during driver load
      * Global s:CX2_:IPW_:g to make code more consistent
      * Fixed #572 problem with setting txpower to auto
      * Fixed #656 problem with kernel oops if mode auto; modprobe -r ipw2200
      * Added QoS (CONFIG_IPW_QOS) support.  This is being actively developed but
        is the first step in getting WMM support into the driver and the kernel.
      * Fixed some race conditions with channel changes, association, and scan
        abort that could periodically cause a firmware restart.
      * Added some extensions to export scan and network statistics to user space
        (exposed through speed_scan and net_stats sysfs entries)
      * Fixed a few bugs in how monitor mode was supported (scan lists
        weren't quite right)
      * Updated the firmware requirement from 2.2 to 2.3 which supports
        monitor mode.

      Removed unneeded parenthesis around numeric constant defines
      Added support for iwspy
      Put in fix for Ad-Hoc mode not passing through all packets (thanks to KKH)
      Put in fix for fragmentation not working for fragment sizes between
      441-464 bytes (thanks to Mohamed Abbas)
      Fixed #592 problem of CONFIG_IEEE80211_WPA_MODULE not including WPA
      support into the driver -- fixed as a result of no longer limiting WPAs
      Fixed #594 problem with user rates mask causing lack of association if
      AP mandatory rate is masked out.  We now add back in as a supported rate
      any mandatory rate.
      Fixed #597 kernel oops due to calling dev_kfree_skb on an skb multiple times.
      Added code to control LEDs that can be controlled through the wireless
      NIC (vs. non-wireless HW interfaces) -- this is currently disabled by
      default due to reports by some users of it hanging their laptop.
      Added some more debug messages around fragmentation logic
      Added locking around STATUS_HCMD_ACTIVE to prevent re-entry race
      Moved ipw_adapter_restart to only execute on the priv->workqueue to
      keep keyboard errors from occuring during adapter restart
      Added CFG_BACKGROUND_SCAN to easily allow people to play with
      background scanning implementations

      Modified scan result logic to report WPA and RSN IEs if set (vs. being
      based on wpa_enabled)
      Fixed issues with endianess compatability between the host and
      wireless adapter (thanks to York Liu and Yi Zhu)

      Added initial support for WPA (thanks to Yi Zhu) -- tested with
      wpa_supplicant (either tip w/ ipw driver, or with -Dipw2100) with
