mac80211: fix a few work bugs

Kalle and Lennert reported problems with the new work
code, and at least Kalle's problem I was able to trace
to a missing jiffies initialisation.

I also ran into a problem where occasionally I couldn't
connect, which seems fixed with kicking the work items
after scanning.

Finally, also add some sanity checking code to verify
that we're not adding work items while an interface is
down -- that case could lead to something similar to
what Lennert was seeing.

There still seems to be a race condition that we're
trying to figure out separately.

9 years agocfg80211: Store IEs from both Beacon and Probe Response frames
Jouni Malinen [Wed, 6 Jan 2010 14:19:24 +0000]
cfg80211: Store IEs from both Beacon and Probe Response frames

Store information elements from Beacon and Probe Response frames in
separate buffers to allow both sets to be made available through
nl80211. This allows user space applications to get access to IEs from
Beacon frames even if we have received Probe Response frames from the
BSS. Previously, the IEs from Probe Response frames would have
overridden the IEs from Beacon frames.

This feature is of somewhat limited use since most protocols include
the same (or extended) information in Probe Response frames. However,
there are couple of exceptions where the IEs from Beacon frames could
be of some use: TIM IE is only included in Beacon frames (and it would
be needed to figure out the DTIM period used in the BSS) and at least
some implementations of Wireless Provisioning Services seem to include
the full IE only in Beacon frames).

The new BSS attribute for scan results is added to allow both the IE
sets to be delivered. This is done in a way that maintains the
previously used behavior for applications that are not aware of the
new NL80211_BSS_BEACON_IES attribute.

Extend struct cfg80211_bitrate_mask to actually use a bitfield mask
instead of just a single fixed or maximum rate index. This change
itself does not modify the behavior (except for debugfs files), but it
prepares cfg80211 and mac80211 for a new nl80211 command for setting
which rates can be used in TX rate control.

Since frames are now going through the rate control algorithm
unconditionally, the internal IEEE80211_TX_INTFL_RCALGO flag can now
be removed. The RC implementations can use the rate_idx_mask value to
optimize their behavior if only a single rate is enabled.

The old max_rate_idx in struct ieee80211_tx_rate_control is maintained
(but commented as deprecated) for backwards compatibility with existing
RC implementations. Once these implementations have been updated to
use the more generic rate_idx_mask, the max_rate_idx value can be
removed.

(e.g., basic rate set = 6, 12, 24 Mbps in IEEE 802.11g mode), the AP

configuration can be used to optimize channel usage in cases where

In AP mode, mac80211 was unconditionally using the lowest rate for
Beacon frames and similarly, with all rate control algorithms that use
rate_control_send_low(), the lowest rate ended up being used for all

mac80211: fix ieee80211_change_mac() to use struct sockaddr

Setting the mac address from user space was buggy. For example, when
executing this command:

ip link set wlan0 address 00:1f:df:88:cd:55

mac80211 used the address 01:00:00:1f:df:88 instead. It was shifted two
bytes.

The reason was that the addr (type of void *) provided to
ieee80211_change_mac() is actually of type struct sockaddr, not just the
mac address array. Also the call to eth_mac_addr() expects the address to
be struct sockaddr.

mac80211: fix skb buffering issue

Since I removed the master netdev, we've been
keeping internal queues only, and even before
that we never told the networking stack above
the virtual interfaces about congestion. This
means that packets are queued in mac80211 and
the upper layers never know, possibly leading
to memory exhaustion and other problems.

This patch makes all interfaces multiqueue and
uses ndo_select_queue to put the packets into
queues per AC. Additionally, when the driver
stops a queue, we now stop all corresponding
queues for the virtual interfaces as well.

The injection case will use VO by default for
non-data frames, and BE for data frames, but
downgrade any data frames according to ACM. It
needs to be fleshed out in the future to allow
chosing the queue/AC in radiotap.

save mode to request the AP to buffer frames for it and
then moves to the other channel to allow the off-channel

mac80211: generalise work handling

In order to use auth/assoc for different purposes
other than MLME, it needs to be split up. For other
purposes, a generic work handling (potentially on
another channel) will be useful.

To achieve that, this patch moves much of the MLME
work handling out of mlme into a new work API. The
API can currently handle probing a specific AP,
authentication and association. The MLME previously
handled probe/authentication as one step and will
continue to do so, but they are separate in the new
work handling.

Work items are RCU-managed to be able to check for
existence of an item for a specific frame in the RX
path, but they can be re-used which the MLME right
now will do for its combined probe/auth step.

mac80211 currently hangs on to the auth state by

confusing behaviour like rejecting scans while

It also means that it needs to keep track of the

disassociated (or disassociates.)

Change this to free the work struct after the
authentication completed successfully and
allocate a new one for associating, thereby
letting cfg80211 manage the auth state. Another
change necessary for this is to tell cfg80211

wl1271: prevent power save entry while not associated
