mac80211: use nullfunc frames for 4-addr sta detection
Felix Fietkau [Fri, 8 Jan 2010 17:06:26 +0000 (18:06 +0100)]
To detect incoming 4-addr stations, hostapd needs to receive a 4-addr
data frame from the remote station, so that it can create the AP VLAN
for it. With this patch, the mlme code emits a 4-addr nullfunc frame
immediately after assoc. On the AP side it also drops 4-addr nullfunc
frames to the cooked monitor mode interface, if the interface hasn't
been fully set up to receive 4-addr data frames yet.
