      mac80211: rewrite HT handling · ae5eb026
      Johannes Berg authored
      
      
      The HT handling has the following deficiencies, which I've
      (partially) fixed:
       * it always uses the AP info even if there is no AP,
         hence has no chance of working as an AP
       * it pretends to be HW config, but really is per-BSS
       * channel sanity checking is left to the drivers
       * it generally lets the driver control too much
      
      HT enabling is still wrong with this patch if you have more than
      one virtual STA mode interface, but that never happens currently.
      Once WDS, IBSS or AP/VLAN gets HT capabilities, it will also be
      wrong, see the comment in ieee80211_enable_ht().
      
      Additionally, this fixes a number of bugs:
       * mac80211: ieee80211_set_disassoc doesn't notify the driver any
                   more since the refactoring
       * iwl-agn-rs: always uses the HT capabilities from the wrong stuff
                     mac80211 gives it rather than the actual peer STA
       * ath9k: a number of bugs resulting from the broken HT API
      
      I'm not entirely happy with putting the HT capabilities into
      struct ieee80211_sta as restricted to our own HT TX capabilities,
      but I see no cleaner solution for now.

      802.11: clean up/fix HT support · d9fe60de
      Johannes Berg authored
      
      
      This patch cleans up a number of things:
       * the unusable definition of the HT capabilities/HT information
         information elements
       * variable names that are hard to understand
       * mac80211: move ieee80211_handle_ht to ht.c and remove the unused
                   enable_ht parameter
       * mac80211: fix bug with MCS rate 32 in ieee80211_handle_ht
       * mac80211: fix bug with casting the result of ieee80211_bss_get_ie
                   to an information element _contents_ rather than the
                   whole element, add size checking (another out-of-bounds
                   access bug fixed!)
       * mac80211: remove some unused return values in favour of BUG_ON
                   checking
       * a few minor other things

      ath9: Fix ath_rx_flush_tid() for IRQs disabled kernel warning message. · 773b4e02
      Senthil Balasubramanian authored
      
      
      This patch addresses an issue with the locking order. ath_rx_flush_tid()
      uses spin_lock/unlock_bh when IRQs are disabled in sta_notify by mac80211.
      
      As node clean up is still pending with ath9k and this problematic portion
      of the code is expected to change anyway, thinking of a proper fix may not
      be worthwhile. So having this interim fix helps the users to get rid of the
      kernel warning message.
      
      Pasted the kernel warning message for reference.
