mac80211: sync driver before TX
Johannes Berg [Tue, 19 Jul 2011 08:39:53 +0000 (10:39 +0200)]
In P2P client mode, the GO (AP) to connect to might
have periods of time where it is not available due
to powersave. To allow the driver to sync with it
and send frames to the GO only when it is available
add a new callback tx_sync (and the corresponding
finish_tx_sync). These callbacks can sleep unlike
the actual TX.
