/**
* 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: mac80211 workqueue
*
* mac80211 provides its own workqueue for drivers and internal mac80211 use.
* The workqueue is a single threaded workqueue and can only be accessed by
* helpers for sanity checking. Drivers must ensure all work added onto the
* mac80211 workqueue should be cancelled on the driver stop() callback.
*
* mac80211 will flushed the workqueue upon interface removal and during
* suspend.
*
* All work performed on the mac80211 workqueue must not acquire the RTNL lock.

/**
* enum mac80211_tx_control_flags - flags to describe transmission information/status
*
* These flags are used with the @flags member of &ieee80211_tx_info.
*
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_REQ_TX_STATUS: require TX status callback for this frame.
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_ASSIGN_SEQ: The driver has to assign a sequence
* number to this frame, taking care of not overwriting the fragment
* number and increasing the sequence number only when the
* IEEE80211_TX_CTL_FIRST_FRAGMENT flag is set. mac80211 will properly
* assign sequence numbers to QoS-data frames but cannot do so correctly
* for non-QoS-data and management frames because beacons need them from
* that counter as well and mac80211 cannot guarantee proper sequencing.
* If this flag is set, the driver should instruct the hardware to
* assign a sequence number to the frame or assign one itself. Cf. IEEE
* 802.11-2007 7.1.3.4.1 paragraph 3. This flag will always be set for
* beacons and always be clear for frames without a sequence number field.
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_NO_ACK: tell the low level not to wait for an ack
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_CLEAR_PS_FILT: clear powersave filter for destination
* station
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_FIRST_FRAGMENT: this is a first fragment of the frame
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_SEND_AFTER_DTIM: send this frame after DTIM beacon
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_AMPDU: this frame should be sent as part of an A-MPDU
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_INJECTED: Frame was injected, internal to mac80211.
* @IEEE80211_TX_STAT_TX_FILTERED: The frame was not transmitted
* because the destination STA was in powersave mode. Note that to
* avoid race conditions, the filter must be set by the hardware or
* firmware upon receiving a frame that indicates that the station
* went to sleep (must be done on device to filter frames already on
* the queue) and may only be unset after mac80211 gives the OK for
* that by setting the IEEE80211_TX_CTL_CLEAR_PS_FILT (see above),
* since only then is it guaranteed that no more frames are in the
* hardware queue.
* @IEEE80211_TX_STAT_ACK: Frame was acknowledged
* @IEEE80211_TX_STAT_AMPDU: The frame was aggregated, so status
* is for the whole aggregation.
* @IEEE80211_TX_STAT_AMPDU_NO_BACK: no block ack was returned,
* so consider using block ack request (BAR).
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_RATE_CTRL_PROBE: internal to mac80211, can be
* set by rate control algorithms to indicate probe rate, will
* be cleared for fragmented frames (except on the last fragment)
* @IEEE80211_TX_INTFL_NEED_TXPROCESSING: completely internal to mac80211,
* used to indicate that a pending frame requires TX processing before
* it can be sent out.
* @IEEE80211_TX_INTFL_RETRIED: completely internal to mac80211,
* used to indicate that a frame was already retried due to PS
* @IEEE80211_TX_INTFL_DONT_ENCRYPT: completely internal to mac80211,
* used to indicate frame should not be encrypted
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_POLL_RESPONSE: This frame is a response to a poll
* frame (PS-Poll or uAPSD) and should be sent although the station
* is in powersave mode.
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_MORE_FRAMES: More frames will be passed to the
* transmit function after the current frame, this can be used
* by drivers to kick the DMA queue only if unset or when the
* queue gets full.
* @IEEE80211_TX_INTFL_RETRANSMISSION: This frame is being retransmitted
* after TX status because the destination was asleep, it must not
* be modified again (no seqno assignment, crypto, etc.)
* @IEEE80211_TX_INTFL_NL80211_FRAME_TX: Frame was requested through nl80211
* MLME command (internal to mac80211 to figure out whether to send TX
* status to user space)
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_LDPC: tells the driver to use LDPC for this frame
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_STBC: Enables Space-Time Block Coding (STBC) for this
* frame and selects the maximum number of streams that it can use.
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_TX_OFFCHAN: Marks this packet to be transmitted on
* the off-channel channel when a remain-on-channel offload is done
* in hardware -- normal packets still flow and are expected to be
* handled properly by the device.
* @IEEE80211_TX_INTFL_TKIP_MIC_FAILURE: Marks this packet to be used for TKIP
* testing. It will be sent out with incorrect Michael MIC key to allow
* TKIP countermeasures to be tested.
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_NO_CCK_RATE: This frame will be sent at non CCK rate.
* This flag is actually used for management frame especially for P2P
* frames not being sent at CCK rate in 2GHz band.
* @IEEE80211_TX_STATUS_EOSP: This packet marks the end of service period,
* when its status is reported the service period ends. For frames in
* an SP that mac80211 transmits, it is already set; for driver frames
* the driver may set this flag. It is also used to do the same for
* PS-Poll responses.
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_USE_MINRATE: This frame will be sent at lowest rate.
* This flag is used to send nullfunc frame at minimum rate when
* the nullfunc is used for connection monitoring purpose.
* @IEEE80211_TX_CTL_DONTFRAG: Don't fragment this packet even if it
* would be fragmented by size (this is optional, only used for
* monitor injection).
*
* Note: If you have to add new flags to the enumeration, then don't
* forget to update %IEEE80211_TX_TEMPORARY_FLAGS when necessary.

*
* @IEEE80211_HW_REPORTS_TX_ACK_STATUS:

*
* @IEEE80211_HW_CONNECTION_MONITOR:
* The hardware performs its own connection monitoring, including

* When this flag is set, signaling beacon-loss will cause an immediate
* change to disassociated state.
*
* @IEEE80211_HW_SUPPORTS_CQM_RSSI:
* Hardware can do connection quality monitoring - i.e. it can monitor
* connection quality related parameters, such as the RSSI level and

* 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 a @sta parameter that will be NULL
* for default keys or keys used for transmission only, or point to
* the station information for the peer for individual keys.
* Multiple transmission keys with the same key index may be used when
* VLANs are configured for an access point.
*
* 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 every time 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 update_tkip_key only. The trigger that makes mac80211 call this
* handler is software decryption with wrap around of iv16.
*/
/**
* DOC: Powersave support
*
* mac80211 has support for various powersave implementations.
*
* First, it can support hardware that handles all powersaving by itself,
* such hardware should simply set the %IEEE80211_HW_SUPPORTS_PS hardware
* flag. In that case, it will be told about the desired powersave mode
* with the %IEEE80211_CONF_PS flag depending on the association status.
* The hardware must take care of sending nullfunc frames when necessary,
* i.e. when entering and leaving powersave mode. The hardware is required
* to look at the AID in beacons and signal to the AP that it woke up when
* it finds traffic directed to it.
*
* %IEEE80211_CONF_PS flag enabled means that the powersave mode defined in
* IEEE 802.11-2007 section 11.2 is enabled. This is not to be confused
* with hardware wakeup and sleep states. Driver is responsible for waking
* up the hardware before issuing commands to the hardware and putting it
* back to sleep at appropriate times.
*
* When PS is enabled, hardware needs to wakeup for beacons and receive the
* buffered multicast/broadcast frames after the beacon. Also it must be
* possible to send frames and receive the acknowledment frame.
*
* Other hardware designs cannot send nullfunc frames by themselves and also
* need software support for parsing the TIM bitmap. This is also supported
* by mac80211 by combining the %IEEE80211_HW_SUPPORTS_PS and
* %IEEE80211_HW_PS_NULLFUNC_STACK flags. The hardware is of course still
* required to pass up beacons. The hardware is still required to handle
* waking up for multicast traffic; if it cannot the driver must handle that
* as best as it can, mac80211 is too slow to do that.
*
* Dynamic powersave is an extension to normal powersave in which the
* hardware stays awake for a user-specified period of time after sending a
* frame so that reply frames need not be buffered and therefore delayed to
* the next wakeup. It's compromise of getting good enough latency when
* there's data traffic and still saving significantly power in idle
* periods.
*
* Dynamic powersave is simply supported by mac80211 enabling and disabling
* PS based on traffic. Driver needs to only set %IEEE80211_HW_SUPPORTS_PS
* flag and mac80211 will handle everything automatically. Additionally,
* hardware having support for the dynamic PS feature may set the
* %IEEE80211_HW_SUPPORTS_DYNAMIC_PS flag to indicate that it can support
* dynamic PS mode itself. The driver needs to look at the
* @dynamic_ps_timeout hardware configuration value and use it that value
* whenever %IEEE80211_CONF_PS is set. In this case mac80211 will disable
* dynamic PS feature in stack and will just keep %IEEE80211_CONF_PS
* enabled whenever user has enabled powersave.
*
* Some hardware need to toggle a single shared antenna between WLAN and
* Bluetooth to facilitate co-existence. These types of hardware set
* limitations on the use of host controlled dynamic powersave whenever there
* is simultaneous WLAN and Bluetooth traffic. For these types of hardware, the
* driver may request temporarily going into full power save, in order to
* enable toggling the antenna between BT and WLAN. If the driver requests
* disabling dynamic powersave, the @dynamic_ps_timeout value will be
* temporarily set to zero until the driver re-enables dynamic powersave.
*
* Driver informs U-APSD client support by enabling
* %IEEE80211_HW_SUPPORTS_UAPSD flag. The mode is configured through the
* uapsd paramater in conf_tx() operation. Hardware needs to send the QoS
* Nullfunc frames and stay awake until the service period has ended. To
* utilize U-APSD, dynamic powersave is disabled for voip AC and all frames
* from that AC are transmitted with powersave enabled.
*
* Note: U-APSD client mode is not yet supported with
* %IEEE80211_HW_PS_NULLFUNC_STACK.
*/
/**
* DOC: Beacon filter support
*
* Some hardware have beacon filter support to reduce host cpu wakeups
* which will reduce system power consumption. It usuallly works so that
* the firmware creates a checksum of the beacon but omits all constantly
* changing elements (TSF, TIM etc). Whenever the checksum changes the
* beacon is forwarded to the host, otherwise it will be just dropped. That
* way the host will only receive beacons where some relevant information
* (for example ERP protection or WMM settings) have changed.
*
* Beacon filter support is advertised with the %IEEE80211_HW_BEACON_FILTER
* hardware capability. The driver needs to enable beacon filter support
* whenever power save is enabled, that is %IEEE80211_CONF_PS is set. When
* power save is enabled, the stack will not check for beacon loss and the
* driver needs to notify about loss of beacons with ieee80211_beacon_loss().
*
* The time (or number of beacons missed) until the firmware notifies the
* driver of a beacon loss event (which in turn causes the driver to call
* ieee80211_beacon_loss()) should be configurable and will be controlled
* by mac80211 and the roaming algorithm in the future.
*
* Since there may be constantly changing information elements that nothing
* in the software stack cares about, we will, in the future, have mac80211
* tell the driver which information elements are interesting in the sense
* that we want to see changes in them. This will include
* - a list of information element IDs
* - a list of OUIs for the vendor information element
*
* Ideally, the hardware would filter out any beacons without changes in the
* requested elements, but if it cannot support that it may, at the expense
* of some efficiency, filter out only a subset. For example, if the device
* doesn't support checking for OUIs it should pass up all changes in all
* vendor information elements.
*
* Note that change, for the sake of simplification, also includes information
* elements appearing or disappearing from the beacon.
*
* Some hardware supports an "ignore list" instead, just make sure nothing
* that was requested is on the ignore list, and include commonly changing
* information element IDs in the ignore list, for example 11 (BSS load) and
* the various vendor-assigned IEs with unknown contents (128, 129, 133-136,
* 149, 150, 155, 156, 173, 176, 178, 179, 219); for forward compatibility
* it could also include some currently unused IDs.
*
*
* In addition to these capabilities, hardware should support notifying the
* host of changes in the beacon RSSI. This is relevant to implement roaming
* when no traffic is flowing (when traffic is flowing we see the RSSI of
* the received data packets). This can consist in notifying the host when
* the RSSI changes significantly or when it drops below or rises above
* configurable thresholds. In the future these thresholds will also be
* configured by mac80211 (which gets them from userspace) to implement
* them as the roaming algorithm requires.
*
* If the hardware cannot implement this, the driver should ask it to
* periodically pass beacon frames to the host so that software can do the
* signal strength threshold checking.

/**
* DOC: Spatial multiplexing power save
*
* SMPS (Spatial multiplexing power save) is a mechanism to conserve

* and rationale, please refer to 802.11 (as amended by 802.11n-2009)
* "11.2.3 SM power save".
*
* The mac80211 implementation is capable of sending action frames

*
* The default mode will be "automatic", which nl80211/cfg80211
* defines to be dynamic SMPS in (regular) powersave, and SMPS
* turned off otherwise.
*
* To support this feature, the driver must set the appropriate

/**
* 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.
*
* Before configure_filter() is invoked, the prepare_multicast()
* callback is invoked with the parameters @mc_count and @mc_list
* for the combined multicast address list of all virtual interfaces.
* It's use is optional, and it returns a u64 that is passed to
* configure_filter(). Additionally, configure_filter() has the
* arguments @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.
*/
/**
* DOC: AP support for powersaving clients
*
* In order to implement AP and P2P GO modes, mac80211 has support for
* client powersaving, both "legacy" PS (PS-Poll/null data) and uAPSD.
* There currently is no support for sAPSD.
*
* There is one assumption that mac80211 makes, namely that a client
* will not poll with PS-Poll and trigger with uAPSD at the same time.
* Both are supported, and both can be used by the same client, but
* they can't be used concurrently by the same client. This simplifies
* the driver code.
*
* The first thing to keep in mind is that there is a flag for complete
* driver implementation: %IEEE80211_HW_AP_LINK_PS. If this flag is set,
* mac80211 expects the driver to handle most of the state machine for
* powersaving clients and will ignore the PM bit in incoming frames.
* Drivers then use ieee80211_sta_ps_transition() to inform mac80211 of
* stations' powersave transitions. In this mode, mac80211 also doesn't
* handle PS-Poll/uAPSD.
*
* In the mode without %IEEE80211_HW_AP_LINK_PS, mac80211 will check the
* PM bit in incoming frames for client powersave transitions. When a
* station goes to sleep, we will stop transmitting to it. There is,
* however, a race condition: a station might go to sleep while there is
* data buffered on hardware queues. If the device has support for this
* it will reject frames, and the driver should give the frames back to
* mac80211 with the %IEEE80211_TX_STAT_TX_FILTERED flag set which will
* cause mac80211 to retry the frame when the station wakes up. The
* driver is also notified of powersave transitions by calling its
* @sta_notify callback.
*
* When the station is asleep, it has three choices: it can wake up,
* it can PS-Poll, or it can possibly start a uAPSD service period.
* Waking up is implemented by simply transmitting all buffered (and
* filtered) frames to the station. This is the easiest case. When
* the station sends a PS-Poll or a uAPSD trigger frame, mac80211
* will inform the driver of this with the @allow_buffered_frames
* callback; this callback is optional. mac80211 will then transmit
* the frames as usual and set the %IEEE80211_TX_CTL_POLL_RESPONSE
* on each frame. The last frame in the service period (or the only
* response to a PS-Poll) also has %IEEE80211_TX_STATUS_EOSP set to
* indicate that it ends the service period; as this frame must have
* TX status report it also sets %IEEE80211_TX_CTL_REQ_TX_STATUS.
* When TX status is reported for this frame, the service period is
* marked has having ended and a new one can be started by the peer.
*
* Another race condition can happen on some devices like iwlwifi
* when there are frames queued for the station and it wakes up
* or polls; the frames that are already queued could end up being
* transmitted first instead, causing reordering and/or wrong
* processing of the EOSP. The cause is that allowing frames to be
* transmitted to a certain station is out-of-band communication to
* the device. To allow this problem to be solved, the driver can
* call ieee80211_sta_block_awake() if frames are buffered when it
* is notified that the station went to sleep. When all these frames
* have been filtered (see above), it must call the function again
* to indicate that the station is no longer blocked.
*
* If the driver buffers frames in the driver for aggregation in any
* way, it must use the ieee80211_sta_set_buffered() call when it is
* notified of the station going to sleep to inform mac80211 of any
* TIDs that have frames buffered. Note that when a station wakes up
* this information is reset (hence the requirement to call it when
* informed of the station going to sleep). Then, when a service
* period starts for any reason, @release_buffered_frames is called
* with the number of frames to be released and which TIDs they are
* to come from. In this case, the driver is responsible for setting
* the EOSP (for uAPSD) and MORE_DATA bits in the released frames,
* to help the @more_data paramter is passed to tell the driver if
* there is more data on other TIDs -- the TIDs to release frames
* from are ignored since mac80211 doesn't know how many frames the
* buffers for those TIDs contain.
*
* If the driver also implement GO mode, where absence periods may
* shorten service periods (or abort PS-Poll responses), it must
* filter those response frames except in the case of frames that
* are buffered in the driver -- those must remain buffered to avoid
* reordering. Because it is possible that no frames are released
* in this case, the driver must call ieee80211_sta_eosp_irqsafe()
* to indicate to mac80211 that the service period ended anyway.
*
* Finally, if frames from multiple TIDs are released from mac80211
* but the driver might reorder them, it must clear & set the flags
* appropriately (only the last frame may have %IEEE80211_TX_STATUS_EOSP)
* and also take care of the EOSP and MORE_DATA bits in the frame.
* The driver may also use ieee80211_sta_eosp_irqsafe() in this case.

* @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 and can sleep.
*
* @stop: Called after last netdevice attached to the hardware
* is disabled. This should turn off the hardware (at least

* May be called right after add_interface if that rejects
* an interface. If you added any work onto the mac80211 workqueue
* you should ensure to cancel it on this callback.
* Must be implemented and can sleep.

* ask the device to suspend. This is only invoked when WoWLAN is
* configured, otherwise the device is deconfigured completely and
* reconfigured at resume time.

* @resume: If WoWLAN was configured, this indicates that mac80211 is
* now resuming its operation, after this the device must be fully
* functional again. If this returns an error, the only way out is
* to also unregister the device. If it returns 1, then mac80211
* will also go through the regular complete restart on resume.
*
* @add_interface: Called when a netdevice attached to the hardware is
* enabled. Because it is not called for monitor mode devices, @start
* 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 and can sleep.
*
* @change_interface: Called when a netdevice changes type. This callback
* is optional, but only if it is supported can interface types be
* switched while the interface is UP. The callback may sleep.
* Note that while an interface is being switched, it will not be
* found by the interface iteration callbacks.
*
* @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. It can sleep.
*
* @config: Handler for configuration requests. IEEE 802.11 code calls this
* function to change hardware configuration, e.g., channel.
* This function should never fail but returns a negative error code
* if it does. The callback can sleep.
*
* @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. The callback
* can sleep.
*
* @tx_sync: Called before a frame is sent to an AP/GO. In the GO case, the
* driver should sync with the GO's powersaving so the device doesn't
* transmit the frame while the GO is asleep. In the regular AP case
* it may be used by drivers for devices implementing other restrictions
* on talking to APs, e.g. due to regulatory enforcement or just HW
* restrictions.
* This function is called for every authentication, association and
* action frame separately since applications might attempt to auth
* with multiple APs before chosing one to associate to. If it returns
* an error, the corresponding authentication, association or frame
* transmission is aborted and reported as having failed. It is always
* called after tuning to the correct channel.
* The callback might be called multiple times before @finish_tx_sync
* (but @finish_tx_sync will be called once for each) but in practice
* this is unlikely to happen. It can also refuse in that case if the
* driver cannot handle that situation.
* This callback can sleep.
* @finish_tx_sync: Called as a counterpart to @tx_sync, unless that returned
* an error. This callback can sleep.
*
* @prepare_multicast: Prepare for multicast filter configuration.
* This callback is optional, and its return value is passed
* to configure_filter(). This callback must be atomic.
*
* @configure_filter: Configure the device's RX filter.
* See the section "Frame filtering" for more information.
* This callback must be implemented and can sleep.
*
* @set_tim: Set TIM bit. 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 is only called between add_interface and
* remove_interface calls, i.e. while the given virtual interface
* is enabled.
* Returns a negative error code if the key can't be added.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @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.
* The callback must be atomic.
*
* @set_rekey_data: If the device supports GTK rekeying, for example while the
* host is suspended, it can assign this callback to retrieve the data
* necessary to do GTK rekeying, this is the KEK, KCK and replay counter.
* After rekeying was done it should (for example during resume) notify
* userspace of the new replay counter using ieee80211_gtk_rekey_notify().
*
* @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. The hardware (or the driver) needs to make sure
* that power save is disabled.
* The @req ie/ie_len members are rewritten by mac80211 to contain the
* entire IEs after the SSID, so that drivers need not look at these
* at all but just send them after the SSID -- mac80211 includes the
* (extended) supported rates and HT information (where applicable).
* When the scan finishes, ieee80211_scan_completed() must be called;
* note that it also must be called when the scan cannot finish due to
* any error unless this callback returned a negative error code.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @cancel_hw_scan: Ask the low-level tp cancel the active hw scan.
* The driver should ask the hardware to cancel the scan (if possible),
* but the scan will be completed only after the driver will call
* ieee80211_scan_completed().
* This callback is needed for wowlan, to prevent enqueueing a new
* scan_work after the low-level driver was already suspended.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @sched_scan_start: Ask the hardware to start scanning repeatedly at
* specific intervals. The driver must call the
* ieee80211_sched_scan_results() function whenever it finds results.
* This process will continue until sched_scan_stop is called.
*
* @sched_scan_stop: Tell the hardware to stop an ongoing scheduled scan.
*
* @sw_scan_start: Notifier function that is called just before a software scan
* is started. Can be NULL, if the driver doesn't need this notification.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @sw_scan_complete: Notifier function that is called just after a
* software scan finished. Can be NULL, if the driver doesn't need
* this notification.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @get_stats: Return low-level statistics.
* Returns zero if statistics are available.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @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.
* The callback must be atomic.
*
* @set_frag_threshold: Configuration of fragmentation threshold. Assign this
* if the device does fragmentation by itself; if this callback is
* implemented then the stack will not do fragmentation.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @set_rts_threshold: Configuration of RTS threshold (if device needs it)
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @sta_add: Notifies low level driver about addition of an associated station,
* AP, IBSS/WDS/mesh peer etc. This callback can sleep.
*
* @sta_remove: Notifies low level driver about removal of an associated
* station, AP, IBSS/WDS/mesh peer etc. This callback can sleep.
*
* @sta_notify: Notifies low level driver about power state transition of an
* associated station, AP, IBSS/WDS/mesh peer etc. For a VIF operating
* in AP mode, this callback will not be called when the flag
* %IEEE80211_HW_AP_LINK_PS is set. Must be atomic.
*
* @conf_tx: Configure TX queue parameters (EDCF (aifs, cw_min, cw_max),
* bursting) for a hardware TX queue.
* Returns a negative error code on failure.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @get_tsf: Get the current TSF timer value from firmware/hardware. Currently,
* this is only used for IBSS mode BSSID merging and debugging. Is not a
* required function.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @set_tsf: Set the TSF timer to the specified value in the firmware/hardware.
* Currently, this is only used for IBSS mode debugging. Is not a
* required function.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @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.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @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.
* Returns non-zero if this device sent the last beacon.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @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.
* The @buf_size parameter is only valid when the action is set to
* %IEEE80211_AMPDU_TX_OPERATIONAL and indicates the peer's reorder
* buffer size (number of subframes) for this session -- the driver
* may neither send aggregates containing more subframes than this
* nor send aggregates in a way that lost frames would exceed the
* buffer size. If just limiting the aggregate size, this would be
* possible with a buf_size of 8:
* - TX: 1.....7
* - RX: 2....7 (lost frame #1)
* - TX: 8..1...
* which is invalid since #1 was now re-transmitted well past the
* buffer size of 8. Correct ways to retransmit #1 would be:
* - TX: 1 or 18 or 81
* Even "189" would be wrong since 1 could be lost again.
*
* Returns a negative error code on failure.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @get_survey: Return per-channel survey information
*
* @rfkill_poll: Poll rfkill hardware state. If you need this, you also
* need to set wiphy->rfkill_poll to %true before registration,
* and need to call wiphy_rfkill_set_hw_state() in the callback.
* The callback can sleep.
*
* @set_coverage_class: Set slot time for given coverage class as specified
* in IEEE 802.11-2007 section 17.3.8.6 and modify ACK timeout
* accordingly. This callback is not required and may sleep.
*
* @testmode_cmd: Implement a cfg80211 test mode command.
* The callback can sleep.
* @testmode_dump: Implement a cfg80211 test mode dump. The callback can sleep.
*
* @flush: Flush all pending frames from the hardware queue, making sure
* that the hardware queues are empty. If the parameter @drop is set
* to %true, pending frames may be dropped. The callback can sleep.
*
* @channel_switch: Drivers that need (or want) to offload the channel
* switch operation for CSAs received from the AP may implement this
* callback. They must then call ieee80211_chswitch_done() to indicate
* completion of the channel switch.
*
* @napi_poll: Poll Rx queue for incoming data frames.
*
* @set_antenna: Set antenna configuration (tx_ant, rx_ant) on the device.
* Parameters are bitmaps of allowed antennas to use for TX/RX. Drivers may
* reject TX/RX mask combinations they cannot support by returning -EINVAL
* (also see nl80211.h @NL80211_ATTR_WIPHY_ANTENNA_TX).
*
* @get_antenna: Get current antenna configuration from device (tx_ant, rx_ant).
*
* @remain_on_channel: Starts an off-channel period on the given channel, must
* call back to ieee80211_ready_on_channel() when on that channel. Note
* that normal channel traffic is not stopped as this is intended for hw
* offload. Frames to transmit on the off-channel channel are transmitted
* normally except for the %IEEE80211_TX_CTL_TX_OFFCHAN flag. When the
* duration (which will always be non-zero) expires, the driver must call
* ieee80211_remain_on_channel_expired(). This callback may sleep.
* @cancel_remain_on_channel: Requests that an ongoing off-channel period is
* aborted before it expires. This callback may sleep.
*
* @set_ringparam: Set tx and rx ring sizes.
*
* @get_ringparam: Get tx and rx ring current and maximum sizes.
*
* @tx_frames_pending: Check if there is any pending frame in the hardware
* queues before entering power save.
*
* @set_bitrate_mask: Set a mask of rates to be used for rate control selection
* when transmitting a frame. Currently only legacy rates are handled.
* The callback can sleep.
* @rssi_callback: Notify driver when the average RSSI goes above/below
* thresholds that were registered previously. The callback can sleep.
*
* @release_buffered_frames: Release buffered frames according to the given
* parameters. In the case where the driver buffers some frames for
* sleeping stations mac80211 will use this callback to tell the driver
* to release some frames, either for PS-poll or uAPSD.
* Note that if the @more_data paramter is %false the driver must check
* if there are more frames on the given TIDs, and if there are more than
* the frames being released then it must still set the more-data bit in
* the frame. If the @more_data parameter is %true, then of course the
* more-data bit must always be set.
* The @tids parameter tells the driver which TIDs to release frames
* from, for PS-poll it will always have only a single bit set.
* In the case this is used for a PS-poll initiated release, the
* @num_frames parameter will always be 1 so code can be shared. In
* this case the driver must also set %IEEE80211_TX_STATUS_EOSP flag
* on the TX status (and must report TX status) so that the PS-poll
* period is properly ended. This is used to avoid sending multiple
* responses for a retried PS-poll frame.
* In the case this is used for uAPSD, the @num_frames parameter may be
* bigger than one, but the driver may send fewer frames (it must send
* at least one, however). In this case it is also responsible for
* setting the EOSP flag in the QoS header of the frames. Also, when the
* service period ends, the driver must set %IEEE80211_TX_STATUS_EOSP
* on the last frame in the SP. Alternatively, it may call the function
* ieee80211_sta_eosp_irqsafe() to inform mac80211 of the end of the SP.
* This callback must be atomic.
* @allow_buffered_frames: Prepare device to allow the given number of frames
* to go out to the given station. The frames will be sent by mac80211
* via the usual TX path after this call. The TX information for frames
* released will also have the %IEEE80211_TX_CTL_POLL_RESPONSE flag set
* and the last one will also have %IEEE80211_TX_STATUS_EOSP set. In case
* frames from multiple TIDs are released and the driver might reorder
* them between the TIDs, it must set the %IEEE80211_TX_STATUS_EOSP flag
* on the last frame and clear it on all others and also handle the EOSP
* bit in the QoS header correctly. Alternatively, it can also call the
* ieee80211_sta_eosp_irqsafe() function.
* The @tids parameter is a bitmap and tells the driver which TIDs the
* frames will be on; it will at most have two bits set.
* This callback must be atomic.
