    mac80211: add WMM admission control support · 02219b3a
    Johannes Berg authored
    Use the currently existing APIs between mac80211 and the low
    level driver to implement WMM admission control.
    The low level driver needs to report the media time used by
    each transmitted packet in ieee80211_tx_status. Based on that
    information, mac80211 will modify the QoS parameters of the
    admission controlled Access Category when the limit is
    reached. Once the original QoS parameters can be restored,
    mac80211 will do so.
    One issue with this approach is that management frames will
    also erroneously be downgraded, but the upside is that the
    implementation is simple. In the future, it can be extended
    to driver- or device-based implementations that are better.
