mac80211: Add capability to enable/disable beaconing
Johannes Berg [Thu, 22 Jan 2009 17:07:31 +0000 (18:07 +0100)]
This patch adds a flag to notify drivers to start and stop
beaconing when needed, for example, during a scan run. Based
on Sujith's first patch to do the same, but now disables
beaconing for all virtual interfaces while scanning, has a
separate change flag and tracks user-space requests.
