      cfg80211: allow wiphy specific regdomain management · b0d7aa59
      Jonathan Doron authored
      Add a new regulatory flag that allows a driver to manage regdomain
      changes/updates for its own wiphy.
      A self-managed wiphys only employs regulatory information obtained from
      the FW and driver and does not use other cfg80211 sources like
      beacon-hints, country-code IEs and hints from other devices on the same
      system. Conversely, a self-managed wiphy does not share its regulatory
      hints with other devices in the system. If a system contains several
      devices, one or more of which are self-managed, there might be
      contradictory regulatory settings between them. Usage of flag is
      generally discouraged. Only use it if the FW/driver is incompatible
      with non-locally originated hints.
      A new API lets the driver send a complete regdomain, to be applied on
      its wiphy only.
      After a wiphy-specific regdomain change takes place, usermode will get
      a new type of change notification. The regulatory core also takes care
      enforce regulatory restrictions, in case some interfaces are on
      forbidden channels.

      cfg80211: 802.11p OCB mode handling · 6e0bd6c3
      Rostislav Lisovy authored
      This patch adds new iface type (NL80211_IFTYPE_OCB) representing
      the OCB (Outside the Context of a BSS) mode.
      When establishing a connection to the network a cfg80211_join_ocb
      function is called (particular nl80211_command is added as well).
      A mandatory parameters during the ocb_join operation are 'center
      frequency' and 'channel width (5/10 MHz)'.
      Changes done in mac80211 are minimal possible required to avoid
      many warnings (warning: enumeration value 'NL80211_IFTYPE_OCB'
      not handled in switch) during compilation. Full functionality
      (where needed) is added in the following patch.

      cfg80211: send scan results from work queue · f9d15d16
      Johannes Berg authored
      Due to the previous commit, when a scan finishes, it is in theory
      possible to hit the following sequence:
       1. interface starts being removed
       2. scan is cancelled by driver and cfg80211 is notified
       3. scan done work is scheduled
       4. interface is removed completely, rdev->scan_req is freed,
          event sent to userspace but scan done work remains pending
       5. new scan is requested on another virtual interface
       6. scan done work runs, freeing the still-running scan
      To fix this situation, hang on to the scan done message and block
      new scans while that is the case, and only send the message from
      the work function, regardless of whether the scan_req is already
      freed from interface removal. This makes step 5 above impossible
      and changes step 6 to be
       5. scan done work runs, sending the scan done message
      As this can't work for wext, so we send the message immediately,
      but this shouldn't be an issue since we still return -EBUSY.

      cfg80211: consider existing DFS interfaces · 9e0e2961
      Michal Kazior authored
      It was possible to break interface combinations in
      the following way:
       combo 1: iftype = AP, num_ifaces = 2, num_chans = 2,
       combo 2: iftype = AP, num_ifaces = 1, num_chans = 1, radar = HT20
      With the above interface combinations it was
      possible to:
       step 1. start AP on DFS channel by matching combo 2
       step 2. start AP on non-DFS channel by matching combo 1
      This was possible beacuse (step 2) did not consider
      if other interfaces require radar detection.
      The patch changes how cfg80211 tracks channels -
      instead of channel itself now a complete chandef
      is stored.

      cfg80211: fix channel configuration in IBSS join · fe94f3a4
      Antonio Quartulli authored
      When receiving an IBSS_JOINED event select the BSS object
      based on the {bssid, channel} couple rather than the bssid
      With the current approach if another cell having the same
      BSSID (but using a different channel) exists then cfg80211
      picks up the wrong BSS object.
      The result is a mismatching channel configuration between
      cfg80211 and the driver, that can lead to any sort of
      The issue can be triggered by having an IBSS sitting on
      given channel and then asking the driver to create a new
      cell using the same BSSID but with a different frequency.
      By passing the channel to cfg80211_get_bss() we can solve
      this ambiguity and retrieve/create the correct BSS object.
      All the users of cfg80211_ibss_joined() have been changed
      Moreover WARN when cfg80211_ibss_joined() gets a NULL
      channel as argument and remove a bogus call of the same
      function in ath6kl (it does not make sense to call
      cfg80211_ibss_joined() with a zero BSSID on ibss-leave).

      cfg80211: don't "leak" uncompleted scans · 4a58e7c3
      Eliad Peller authored
      ___cfg80211_scan_done() can be called in some cases
      (e.g. on NETDEV_DOWN) before the low level driver
      notified scan completion (which is indicated by
      passing leak=true).
      Clearing rdev->scan_req in this case is buggy, as
      scan_done_wk might have already being queued/running
      (and can't be flushed as it takes rtnl()).
      If a new scan will be requested at this stage, the
      scan_done_wk will try freeing it (instead of the
      previous scan), and this will later result in
      a use after free.
      Simply remove the "leak" option, and replace it with
      a standard WARN_ON.

      nl80211: vendor command support · ad7e718c
      Johannes Berg authored
      Add support for vendor-specific commands to nl80211. This is
      intended to be used for really vendor-specific functionality
      that can't be implemented in a generic fashion for any reason.
      It's *NOT* intended to be used for any normal/generic feature
      or any optimisations that could be implemented across drivers.
      Currently, only vendor commands (with replies) are supported,
      no dump operations or vendor-specific notifications.
      Also add a function wdev_to_ieee80211_vif() to mac80211 which
      is needed for mac80211-based drivers wanting to implement any
      vendor commands.

      cfg80211/nl80211: Add packet coalesce support · be29b99a
      Amitkumar Karwar authored
      In most cases, host that receives IPv4 and IPv6 multicast/broadcast
      packets does not do anything with these packets. Therefore the
      reception of these unwanted packets causes unnecessary processing
      and power consumption.
      Packet coalesce feature helps to reduce number of received
      interrupts to host by buffering these packets in firmware/hardware
      for some predefined time. Received interrupt will be generated when
      one of the following events occur.
      a) Expiration of hardware timer whose expiration time is set to
      maximum coalescing delay of matching coalesce rule.
      b) Coalescing buffer in hardware reaches it's limit.
      c) Packet doesn't match any of the configured coalesce rules.
      This patch adds set/get configuration support for packet coalesce.
      User needs to configure following parameters for creating a coalesce
      a) Maximum coalescing delay
      b) List of packet patterns which needs to be matched
      c) Condition for coalescence. pattern 'match' or 'no match'
      Multiple such rules can be created.
      This feature needs to be advertised during driver initialization.
      Drivers are supposed to do required firmware/hardware settings based
      on user configuration.

      cfg80211: separate internal SME implementation · ceca7b71
      Johannes Berg authored
      The current internal SME implementation in cfg80211 is
      very mixed up with the MLME handling, which has been
      causing issues for a long time. There are three things
      that the implementation has to provide:
       * a basic SME implementation for nl80211's connect()
         call (for drivers implementing auth/assoc, which is
         really just mac80211) and wireless extensions
       * MLME events for the userspace SME
       * SME events (connected, disconnected etc.) for all
         different SME implementation possibilities (driver,
         cfg80211 and userspace)
      To achieve these goals it isn't necessary to track the
      software SME's connection status outside of it's state
      (which is the part that caused many issues.) Instead,
      track it only in the SME data (wdev->conn) and in the
      general case only track whether the wdev is connected
      or not (via wdev->current_bss.)
      Also separate the internal implementation to not have
      callbacks from the SME events, but rather call it from
      the API functions that the driver (or rather mac80211)
      calls. This separates the code better.

      cfg80211: always check for scan end on P2P device · f9f47529
      Johannes Berg authored
      If a P2P device wdev is removed while it has a scan, then the
      scan completion might crash later as it is already freed by
      that time. To avoid the crash always check the scan completion
      when the P2P device is being removed for some reason. If the
      driver already canceled it, don't want and free it, otherwise
      warn and leak it to avoid later crashes.
      In order to do this, locking needs to be changed away from the
      rdev mutex (which can't always be guaranteed). For now, use
      the sched_scan_mtx instead, I'll rename it to just scan_mtx in
      a later patch.

      cfg80211: track hidden SSID networks properly · 776b3580
      Johannes Berg authored
      Currently, cfg80211 will copy beacon IEs from a previously
      received hidden SSID beacon to a probe response entry, if
      that entry is created after the beacon entry. However, if
      it is the other way around, or if the beacon is updated,
      such changes aren't propagated.
      Fix this by tracking the relation between the probe
      response and beacon BSS structs in this case.
      In case drivers have private data stored in a BSS struct
      and need access to such data from a beacon entry, cfg80211
      now provides the hidden_beacon_bss pointer from the probe
      response entry to the beacon entry.
