/**
* DOC: Introduction
*
* mac80211 is the Linux stack for 802.11 hardware that implements
* only partial functionality in hard- or firmware. This document
* defines the interface between mac80211 and low-level hardware
* drivers.
*/
/**
* DOC: Calling mac80211 from interrupts
*
* Only ieee80211_tx_status_irqsafe() and ieee80211_rx_irqsafe() can be
* called in hardware interrupt context. The low-level driver must not call any
* other functions in hardware interrupt context. If there is a need for such
* call, the low-level driver should first ACK the interrupt and perform the
* IEEE 802.11 code call after this, e.g. from a scheduled workqueue or even
* tasklet function.
*
* NOTE: If the driver opts to use the _irqsafe() functions, it may not also
* use the non-IRQ-safe functions!
*/
/**
* DOC: Warning
*
* If you're reading this document and not the header file itself, it will
* be incomplete because not all documentation has been converted yet.
*/
/**
* DOC: Frame format
*
* As a general rule, when frames are passed between mac80211 and the driver,
* they start with the IEEE 802.11 header and include the same octets that are
* sent over the air except for the FCS which should be calculated by the
* hardware.
*
* There are, however, various exceptions to this rule for advanced features:
*
* The first exception is for hardware encryption and decryption offload
* where the IV/ICV may or may not be generated in hardware.
*
* Secondly, when the hardware handles fragmentation, the frame handed to
* the driver from mac80211 is the MSDU, not the MPDU.
*
* Finally, for received frames, the driver is able to indicate that it has
* filled a radiotap header and put that in front of the frame; if it does
* not do so then mac80211 may add this under certain circumstances.

* DOC: Hardware crypto acceleration
*
* mac80211 is capable of taking advantage of many hardware
* acceleration designs for encryption and decryption operations.
*
* The set_key() callback in the &struct ieee80211_ops for a given
* device is called to enable hardware acceleration of encryption and
* decryption. The callback takes an @address parameter that will be
* the broadcast address for default keys, the other station's hardware
* address for individual keys or the zero address for keys that will
* be used only for transmission.
* Multiple transmission keys with the same key index may be used when
* VLANs are configured for an access point.
*
* The @local_address parameter will always be set to our own address,
* this is only relevant if you support multiple local addresses.
*
* When transmitting, the TX control data will use the @hw_key_idx
* selected by the driver by modifying the &struct ieee80211_key_conf
* pointed to by the @key parameter to the set_key() function.
*
* The set_key() call for the %SET_KEY command should return 0 if
* the key is now in use, -%EOPNOTSUPP or -%ENOSPC if it couldn't be
* added; if you return 0 then hw_key_idx must be assigned to the
* hardware key index, you are free to use the full u8 range.
*
* When the cmd is %DISABLE_KEY then it must succeed.
*
* Note that it is permissible to not decrypt a frame even if a key
* for it has been uploaded to hardware, the stack will not make any
* decision based on whether a key has been uploaded or not but rather
* based on the receive flags.
*
* The &struct ieee80211_key_conf structure pointed to by the @key
* parameter is guaranteed to be valid until another call to set_key()
* removes it, but it can only be used as a cookie to differentiate
* keys.
*
* In TKIP some HW need to be provided a phase 1 key, for RX decryption
* acceleration (i.e. iwlwifi). Those drivers should provide update_tkip_key
* handler.
* The update_tkip_key() call updates the driver with the new phase 1 key.
* This happens everytime the iv16 wraps around (every 65536 packets). The
* set_key() call will happen only once for each key (unless the AP did
* rekeying), it will not include a valid phase 1 key. The valid phase 1 key is
* provided by udpate_tkip_key only. The trigger that makes mac80211 call this
* handler is software decryption with wrap around of iv16.

/**
* DOC: Frame filtering
*
* mac80211 requires to see many management frames for proper
* operation, and users may want to see many more frames when
* in monitor mode. However, for best CPU usage and power consumption,
* having as few frames as possible percolate through the stack is
* desirable. Hence, the hardware should filter as much as possible.
*
* To achieve this, mac80211 uses filter flags (see below) to tell
* the driver's configure_filter() function which frames should be
* passed to mac80211 and which should be filtered out.
*
* The configure_filter() callback is invoked with the parameters
* @mc_count and @mc_list for the combined multicast address list
* of all virtual interfaces, @changed_flags telling which flags
* were changed and @total_flags with the new flag states.
*
* If your device has no multicast address filters your driver will
* need to check both the %FIF_ALLMULTI flag and the @mc_count
* parameter to see whether multicast frames should be accepted
* or dropped.
*
* All unsupported flags in @total_flags must be cleared.
* Hardware does not support a flag if it is incapable of _passing_
* the frame to the stack. Otherwise the driver must ignore
* the flag, but not clear it.
* You must _only_ clear the flag (announce no support for the
* flag to mac80211) if you are not able to pass the packet type
* to the stack (so the hardware always filters it).
* So for example, you should clear @FIF_CONTROL, if your hardware
* always filters control frames. If your hardware always passes
* control frames to the kernel and is incapable of filtering them,
* you do _not_ clear the @FIF_CONTROL flag.
* This rule applies to all other FIF flags as well.

* struct ieee80211_ops - callbacks from mac80211 to the driver
*
* This structure contains various callbacks that the driver may
* handle or, in some cases, must handle, for example to configure
* the hardware to a new channel or to transmit a frame.
*
* @tx: Handler that 802.11 module calls for each transmitted frame.
* skb contains the buffer starting from the IEEE 802.11 header.
* The low-level driver should send the frame out based on
* configuration in the TX control data. This handler should,
* preferably, never fail and stop queues appropriately, more
* importantly, however, it must never fail for A-MPDU-queues.
* Must be implemented and atomic.
*
* @start: Called before the first netdevice attached to the hardware
* is enabled. This should turn on the hardware and must turn on
* frame reception (for possibly enabled monitor interfaces.)
* Returns negative error codes, these may be seen in userspace,
* or zero.
* When the device is started it should not have a MAC address
* to avoid acknowledging frames before a non-monitor device
* is added.
* Must be implemented.
*
* @stop: Called after last netdevice attached to the hardware
* is disabled. This should turn off the hardware (at least
* it must turn off frame reception.)
* May be called right after add_interface if that rejects
* an interface.
* Must be implemented.
*
* @add_interface: Called when a netdevice attached to the hardware is
* enabled. Because it is not called for monitor mode devices, @open
* and @stop must be implemented.
* The driver should perform any initialization it needs before
* the device can be enabled. The initial configuration for the
* interface is given in the conf parameter.
* The callback may refuse to add an interface by returning a
* negative error code (which will be seen in userspace.)
* Must be implemented.
*
* @remove_interface: Notifies a driver that an interface is going down.
* The @stop callback is called after this if it is the last interface
* and no monitor interfaces are present.
* When all interfaces are removed, the MAC address in the hardware
* must be cleared so the device no longer acknowledges packets,
* the mac_addr member of the conf structure is, however, set to the
* MAC address of the device going away.
* Hence, this callback must be implemented.
*
* @config: Handler for configuration requests. IEEE 802.11 code calls this
* function to change hardware configuration, e.g., channel.
*
* @config_interface: Handler for configuration requests related to interfaces
* (e.g. BSSID changes.)
*
* @bss_info_changed: Handler for configuration requests related to BSS
* parameters that may vary during BSS's lifespan, and may affect low
* level driver (e.g. assoc/disassoc status, erp parameters).
* This function should not be used if no BSS has been set, unless
* for association indication. The @changed parameter indicates which
* of the bss parameters has changed when a call is made.
*
* @configure_filter: Configure the device's RX filter.
* See the section "Frame filtering" for more information.
* This callback must be implemented and atomic.
*
* @set_tim: Set TIM bit. If the hardware/firmware takes care of beacon
* generation (that is, %IEEE80211_HW_HOST_GEN_BEACON_TEMPLATE is set)
* mac80211 calls this function when a TIM bit must be set or cleared
* for a given STA. Must be atomic.
*
* @set_key: See the section "Hardware crypto acceleration"
* This callback can sleep, and is only called between add_interface
* and remove_interface calls, i.e. while the interface with the
* given local_address is enabled.
*
* @update_tkip_key: See the section "Hardware crypto acceleration"
* This callback will be called in the context of Rx. Called for drivers
* which set IEEE80211_KEY_FLAG_TKIP_REQ_RX_P1_KEY.
*
* @hw_scan: Ask the hardware to service the scan request, no need to start
* the scan state machine in stack. The scan must honour the channel
* configuration done by the regulatory agent in the wiphy's registered
* bands.
*
* @get_stats: return low-level statistics
*
* @get_tkip_seq: If your device implements TKIP encryption in hardware this
* callback should be provided to read the TKIP transmit IVs (both IV32
* and IV16) for the given key from hardware.
*
* @set_rts_threshold: Configuration of RTS threshold (if device needs it)
*
* @set_frag_threshold: Configuration of fragmentation threshold. Assign this if
* the device does fragmentation by itself; if this method is assigned then
* the stack will not do fragmentation.
*
* @set_retry_limit: Configuration of retry limits (if device needs it)
*
* @sta_notify: Notifies low level driver about addition or removal
* of assocaited station or AP.
*
* @conf_tx: Configure TX queue parameters (EDCF (aifs, cw_min, cw_max),
* bursting) for a hardware TX queue. Must be atomic.
*
* @get_tx_stats: Get statistics of the current TX queue status. This is used
* to get number of currently queued packets (queue length), maximum queue
* size (limit), and total number of packets sent using each TX queue
* (count). The 'stats' pointer points to an array that has hw->queues +
* hw->ampdu_queues items.
*
* @get_tsf: Get the current TSF timer value from firmware/hardware. Currently,
* this is only used for IBSS mode debugging and, as such, is not a
* required function. Must be atomic.
*
* @reset_tsf: Reset the TSF timer and allow firmware/hardware to synchronize
* with other STAs in the IBSS. This is only used in IBSS mode. This
* function is optional if the firmware/hardware takes full care of
* TSF synchronization.
*
* @tx_last_beacon: Determine whether the last IBSS beacon was sent by us.
* This is needed only for IBSS mode and the result of this function is
* used to determine whether to reply to Probe Requests.
*
* @conf_ht: Configures low level driver with 802.11n HT data. Must be atomic.
*
* @ampdu_action: Perform a certain A-MPDU action
* The RA/TID combination determines the destination and TID we want
* the ampdu action to be performed for. The action is defined through
* ieee80211_ampdu_mlme_action. Starting sequence number (@ssn)
* is the first frame we expect to perform the action on. notice
* that TX/RX_STOP can pass NULL for this parameter.
