mac80211: Handle power constraint level advertised in 11d+h beacon
Vasanthakumar Thiagarajan [Fri, 9 Jan 2009 12:44:15 +0000 (17:44 +0530)]
This patch uses power constraint level while determining the maximum
transmit power, there by it makes sure that any power mitigation
requirement for the channel in the current regulatory domain is met.
