cfg80211: Add nl80211 event for deletion of a station entry
Jouni Malinen [Wed, 23 Mar 2011 13:29:52 +0000 (15:29 +0200)]
Indicate an NL80211_CMD_DEL_STATION event when a station entry in
mac80211 is deleted to match with the NL80211_CMD_NEW_STATION event
that is used when the entry was added. This is needed, e.g., to allow
user space to remove a peer from RSN IBSS Authenticator state machine
to avoid re-authentication and re-keying delays when the peer is not
reachable anymore.
