rt2x00: Optimize rt2x00debug_dump_frame when frame dumping is not active

When rt2x00 is compiled with debugging but frame dumping is currently
not active we can avoid the call to do_gettimeofday. Furthermore,
frame dumping is not the default case, mark it as unlikely.

The tx descriptor values qid, cw_min, cw_max and aifs are directly
accessible through the tx entry struct. So there's no need to copy

8 years agoath9k: rework tx queue selection and fix queue stopping/waking
Felix Fietkau [Sun, 7 Nov 2010 13:59:39 +0000]
ath9k: rework tx queue selection and fix queue stopping/waking

The current ath9k tx queue handling code showed a few issues that could
lead to locking issues, tx stalls due to stopped queues, and maybe even
DMA issues.

The main source of these issues is that in some places the queue is
selected via skb queue mapping in places where this mapping may no
longer be valid. One such place is when data frames are transmitted via
the CAB queue (for powersave buffered frames). This is made even worse
by a lookup WMM AC values from the assigned tx queue (which is
undefined for the CAB queue).

This messed up the pending frame counting, which in turn caused issues
with queues getting stopped, but not woken again.

To fix these issues, this patch removes an unnecessary abstraction
separating a driver internal queue number from the skb queue number
(not to be confused with the hardware queue number).

It seems that this abstraction may have been necessary because of tx
queue preinitialization from the initvals. This patch avoids breakage
here by pushing the software <-> hardware queue mapping to the function
that assigns the tx queues and redefining the WMM AC definitions to
match the numbers used by mac80211 (also affects ath9k_htc).

To ensure consistency wrt. pending frame count tracking, these counters
are moved to the ath_txq struct, updated with the txq lock held, but
only where the tx queue selected by the skb queue map actually matches
the tx queue used by the driver for the frame.

wl1271: Check interface state in op_* functions

Check the state of the interface on op_* function so we don't try to access
the hardware in when its off.

The mac80211 may call these in some corner cases related, for instance, to
the hardware recovery procedure. These accesses cause a kernel crash on at
least some SDIO devices, because the bus is not properly claimed in that
scenario.

Juuso Oikarinen [Mon, 25 Oct 2010 09:24:29 +0000]
wl1271: Fix RX path stall

The wl1271_rx function loops through packets in an aggregated buffer. Each
packet in the buffer is handled by a call to wl1271_rx_handle_data, which will
fail if skb memory allocation fails or production mode is enabled. These
failures currently prevent the rx counters to be incremented, thus causing the
rx loop to run forever.

Fix this by ignoring error codes reported wl1271_rx_handle_data function.
This essentially means that frames will be dropped in production mode, which
is the intetion, and frames will be dropped if memory allocation fails, which
is a decent way to recover from that situation.

wl1271: Fix TX queue low watermark handling

The number of entries in the TX queue is compared to the low watermark
value each time TX completion interrupts are handled.
However, the fact that a TX completion arrived does not necessarily mean
there are any less skbs in the TX queue.

In addition, a TX completion interrupt does not necessarily mean that there
are any new available TX blocks. Thus, queuing TX work when the low
watermark is reached might not be needed.

Fix this by moving the low watermark handling to the TX work function,
and avoid queuing TX work in this case.

to avoid regressions and move their code to

The new RXON processing is more central and
does more work in committing, so that it is
easier to follow.

To make it more evident what is split out

for that into a new struct iwl_legacy_ops.

iwlwifi: avoid commit rxon during scan in iwlagn_configure_filter

Almost anywhere in the code we avoid committing rxon while performing
scan, and make rxon commit when scan complete. However in some places
in the code we do not follow that rule. This patch fix that problem in
iwlagn_configure_filter().

Since we do not commit directly in iwl3945_configure_filter, we can
also do the same for agn, so I just remove iwlcore_commit_rxon()
function and add a comment. Also change comment for iwl3945.

ath9k: add a debug warning when we cannot stop RX

We have seen several DMA races when we race against
stopping and starting the PCU. I suspect that when
we cannot stop the PCU we may hit some of these same

debugging (CONFIG_ATH_DEBUG) is enabled.

If you run into this warning and are a developer,
please fix the cause of the warning. The potential
here, although I cannot prove yet, is that the DMA
engine can be confused and start writing to a buffer
that was already DMA'd before and at least the kernel
assumes is not being accessed by hardware anymore.

Luis R. Rodriguez [Wed, 20 Oct 2010 17:18:55 +0000]
cfg80211: fix disabling channels based on hints

After a module loads you will have loaded the world roaming regulatory
domain or a custom regulatory domain. Further regulatory hints are
welcomed and should be respected unless the regulatory hint is coming
from a country IE as the IEEE spec allows for a country IE to be a subset
of what is allowed by the local regulatory agencies.

So disable all channels that do not fit a regulatory domain sent
from a unless the hint is from a country IE and the country IE had
no information about the band we are currently processing.

This fixes a few regulatory issues, for example for drivers that depend
on CRDA and had no 5 GHz freqencies allowed were not properly disabling
5 GHz at all, furthermore it also allows users to restrict devices
further as was intended.

If you recieve a country IE upon association we will also disable the
channels that are not allowed if the country IE had at least one
channel on the respective band we are procesing.

This was the original intention behind this design but it was
completely overlooked...
