9 years agowireless: only use alpha2 regulatory information from country IE
John W. Linville [Thu, 15 Jul 2010 18:57:33 +0000]
wireless: only use alpha2 regulatory information from country IE

The meaning and/or usage of the country IE is somewhat poorly defined.
In practice, this means that regulatory rulesets in a country IE are
often incomplete and might be untrustworthy.  This removes the code
associated with interpreting those rulesets while preserving respect
for country "alpha2" codes also contained in the country IE.

mac80211: move QoS-enable to BSS info

Ever since

commit e1b3ec1a2a336c328c336cfa5485a5f0484cc90d
Author: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@redhat.com>
Date:   Mon Mar 29 12:18:34 2010 +0200

    mac80211: explicitly disable/enable QoS

mac80211 is telling drivers, in particular
iwlwifi, whether QoS is enabled or not.

However, this is only relevant for station mode,
since only then will any device send nullfunc
frames and need to know whether they should be
QoS frames or not. In other modes, there are
(currently) no frames the device is supposed to
send.

When you now consider virtual interfaces, it
becomes apparent that the current mechanism is
inadequate since it enables/disables QoS on a
global scale, where for nullfunc frames it has
to be on a per-interface scale.

Due to the above considerations, we can change
the way mac80211 advertises the QoS state to
drivers to only ever advertise it as "off" in
station mode, and make it a per-BSS setting.

An A-MPDU may contain several subframes each containing its own
CRC for the data. Each subframe also has a respective CRC for the
MPDU length and 4 reserved bits (aka delimeter CRC). AR9003 will
ACK frames that have a valid data CRC but have failed to pass the

last subframe in an A-MPDU and if an OFDM phy OFDM reset error has
been caught. Discarding those subframes results in packet loss under
heavy stress conditions, an example being UDP video. Since the

and process them as valid frames.

Bruno Randolf [Wed, 14 Jul 2010 01:53:29 +0000]
ath5k: clean up rxlink handling

There were a few places where the sc->rxlink pointer was set to NULL "just in
case". This helps nothing - quite to the contrary it is problematic since it
can create self-linked rx descriptors in the middle of the list of receive
buffers.

Here is an example how this could happen (thanks Bob!):

cpu 0:                                      cpu 1:

ath5k_rx_stop
                                            ath5k_tasklet_rx
sc->rxlink = NULL;   /* just in case */
                                              // following doesn't link used
                                              // buffer to prev.
                                              ath5k_rxbuf_setup()

In the case of ath5k_rx_stop() and ath5k_stop_locked() buffers/descriptors are
not changed so rxlink should not be changed as well.

In ath5k_intr() we seem to  try to work around a hardware bug, as the comment
(which is copied 1:1 from the HAL) suggests. I don't see how this could help.
Also the HAL does not set rxlink in this case (So where does this code come
from? It has been there since the first import of ath5k). Changed to just
increment a statistics counter.

After this patch rxlink is only set to NULL before we initialize rx descriptors
and updated when the descriptors are linked together.

reset can also be called in process context (e.g. for channel

which can be the source of corruption bugs.

rt2x00: Move driver callback functions into the ops structure

All callback functions are gathered in rt2x00dev->ops except
for the callback functions which are used in rt2800lib to
acces rt2800pci/usb.

Move the priv pointer from rt2x00dev to rt2x00dev->ops and

structure.

rt2x00: Add missing TSF sync mode for AP operation

Currently rt2x00 uses the TSF_SYNC_BEACON mode for all beaconing
interface types. However, TSF_SYNC_BEACON is meant for IBSS networks and
thus implements TSF merging in the hardware. Rename TSF_SYNC_BEACON to
TSF_SYNC_ADHOC to better express its purpose and introduce the missing
TSF sync mode TSF_SYNC_AP_NONE which should be used for beaconing modes
that don't need TSF merging.

9 years agort2x00: Remove set_tim callback from PCI drivers
Helmut Schaa [Sun, 11 Jul 2010 10:29:26 +0000]
rt2x00: Remove set_tim callback from PCI drivers

Using the set_tim callback without managing the DTIM count and the
broad- and multicast buffering in hw, fw or the driver results in wrong
DTIM count values being sent out in beacons. Since all PCI drivers
fetch new beacons periodically and hence get an updated TIM we can just
remove the set_tim callback from these.

The rt2x00 USB drivers don't update the beacon periodically and thus
rely on the set_tim callback to get a correct TIM for beacon
transmission. USB devices still suffer from the DTIM count being wrong
under some circumstances but removing the set_tim callback from these
would cause more harm then good.

9 years agowl1271: Work around AP's with broken ps-poll functionality
Juuso Oikarinen [Thu, 8 Jul 2010 14:50:00 +0000]
wl1271: Work around AP's with broken ps-poll functionality

Some AP's (such as Zyxel Prestige 600) have totally broken ps-poll
functionality. When powersave is enabled, these AP's will set the TIM bit for
a STA in beacons, but when the STA responds with a ps-poll, the AP does not
respond with data.

The wl1271 firmware is able to send an indication to the host, when this
problem occurs. This patch adds implementation, which temporarily disables
power-save in response to this indication, allowing the AP to transmit whatever
data it has buffered for the STA / whatever data is inbound at that time.

This patch does not make these AP's work reliably in PSM, but improves the
chances of inbound data getting through.

The side effect of this patch is increased power consumption when using a
faulty AP.

The consequence of this is that when the device is reconfigured after the
