      mac80211: fix BSS info reconfiguration · ac8dd506
      Johannes Berg authored
      When reconfiguring an interface due to a previous
      hardware restart, mac80211 will currently include
      the new IBSS flag on non-IBSS interfaces which may
      confuse drivers.
      Instead of doing the ~0 trick, simply spell out
      which things are going to be reconfigured.

      orinoco: refactor xmit path · bac6fafd
      David Kilroy authored
      ... so orinoco_usb can share some common functionality.
      Handle 802.2 encapsulation and MIC calculation in that function.
      The 802.3 header is prepended to the SKB. The calculated MIC is written
      to a specified buffer. Also modify the transmit control word that will
      be passed onto the hardware to specify whether the MIC is present, and
      the key used.

      ath9k: fix another source of corrupt frames · 3ef83d74
      Felix Fietkau authored
      Atheros hardware supports receiving frames that span multiple
      descriptors and buffers. In this case, the rx status of every
      descriptor except for the last one is invalid and may contain random
      data. Because the driver does not support this, it needs to drop such

      ar9170usb: remove deprecated aggregation code · f3926b49
      Christian Lamparter authored
      This patch removes the incomplete AMPDU implementation in ar9170usb.
      The code in question is:
       * too big and complex (more than 550 SLOC.)
         This is enough to qualify for a new separate code file!
       * unbalanced quantity & quality
      	over-engineered areas like:
      		* xmit scheduling and queuing frames for multiple HT peers
      		* redundant frame sorting
      	are confronted by gaping holes:
      		* accurate transmission feedback
      		* firmware error-handling and device reset
      		* HT rate control algorithm
       * error-prone
      	Since its inclusion, hardly anything was done to fix
      	any of the outlined flaws from the initial commit message.
         => This also indicates poor maintainability.
       * relies heavily on several spinlocks.
      As a result of this shortcomings, the code is slow and does not
      even support the most basic 11n requirement: HT station mode.
      Therefore, I request to purge my heap of **** from the kernel:
      "ar9170: implement transmit aggregation".
      The next item on the agenda is: (re-)start from scratch with
      an adequate design to accommodate the special requirements
      and features of the available frameworks and tools.
