Pavel Roskin [Thu, 11 Feb 2010 22:56:06 +0000]
Introduce PCMCIA_DEVICE_PROD_ID3

...and use it in hostap_cs and orinoco_cs.

Another PCMCIA device with Intersil Prism chipset has been reported:

Socket 0:
  product info: "Gigabyte", "GN-WLM01_P25L_ADAPTER", "ISL37300P", "Eval-RevA"
  manfid: 0x02e0, 0x1011
  function: 6 (network)

As it's the case with some other Prism based devices, the third ID
string contains a design name that should be sufficient to identify the
card as having Intersil Prism chipset and thus compatible with both
orinoco_cs and hostap_cs.

Introduce PCMCIA_DEVICE_PROD_ID3 that matches the third ID string only.

Use it in orinoco_cs and hostap_cs to match cards with the third ID
string indicating Prism chipset.  Remove corresponding entries that use
PCMCIA_DEVICE_PROD_ID123.

In order to not confuse users we shouldn't claim the PCI and USB device

For rt2800usb a 3rd class of devices is added, which are the unknown
devices. For these devices it is known that they are either based on
rt28xx, rt30xx or rt35xx, but it is not known on what chipset exactly.

When the throughput drops, the ratio of the actual_ack_count and the expected_
ack_count also drops.  At the same time, the aggregated ba_timeout (the number
of ba timeout retries) also rises.  If the actual_ack_count/expected_ack_count
ratio is 0 and the number of ba timeout retries rises to 16, no tx packets
(tcp, udp, or ping - icmp) can be delivered.  The driver recovers from this
situation by reseting the uCode firmware.  If the actual_ack_count/expected_
ack_count ratio drops below 50% (but not 0) and the aggregated ba_timeout
retries just exceed 5 (but not 16), then the driver can reset the radio to

mac80211: Deny TX BA session requests during disassociation

In associated state, when bringing an interface down, existing
BA sessions are torn down. When this is in progress, nothing
prevents mac80211 from accepting another BA session start request.

Use a new station flag to fix this.

mac80211: Reset dynamic ps timer in Rx path.

The current mac80211 implementation enables power save if there
is no Tx traffic for a specific timeout. Hence, PS is triggered
even if there is a continuous Rx only traffic(like UDP) going on.
This makes the drivers to wait on the tim bit in the next beacon
to awake which leads to redundant sleep-wake cycles.
Fix this by restarting the dynamic ps timer on receiving every

Johannes Berg [Wed, 3 Feb 2010 12:59:58 +0000]
mac80211: allow station add/remove to sleep

Many drivers would like to sleep during station
addition and removal, and currently have a high
complexity there from not being able to.

This introduces two new callbacks sta_add() and
sta_remove() that drivers can implement instead
of using sta_notify() and that can sleep, and
the new sta_add() callback is also allowed to
fail.

The reason we didn't do this previously is that
the IBSS code wants to insert stations from the
RX path, which is a tasklet, so cannot sleep.
This patch will keep the station allocation in
that path, but moves adding the station to the
driver out of line. Since the addition can now
fail, we can have IBSS peer structs the driver
rejected -- in that case we still talk to the
station but never tell the driver about it in
the control.sta pointer. If there will ever be
a driver that has a low limit on the number of
stations and that cannot talk to any stations
that are not known to it, we need to do come up
with a new strategy of handling larger IBSSs,
maybe quicker expiry or rejecting peers.

10 years agomac80211: fix deferred hardware scan requests
Johannes Berg [Wed, 3 Feb 2010 09:22:31 +0000]
mac80211: fix deferred hardware scan requests

Reinette found the reason for the warnings that
happened occasionally when a hw-offloaded scan
finished; her description of the problem:

  mac80211 will defer the handling of scan requests if it is
  busy with management work at the time. The scan requests
  are deferred and run after the work has completed. When
  this occurs there are currently two problems.

  * The scan request for hardware scan is not fully populated
    with the band and channels to scan not initialized.

  * When the scan is queued the state is not correctly updated
    to reflect that a scan is in progress. The problem here is
    that when the driver completes the scan and calls
    ieee80211_scan_completed() a warning will be triggered
    since mac80211 was not aware that a scan was in progress.

The reason is that the queued scan work will start
the hw scan right away when the hw_scan_req struct
has already been allocated. However, in the first
pass it will not have been filled, which happens
at the same time as setting the bits. To fix this,
simply move the allocation after the pending work
test as well, so that the first iteration of the
scan work will call __ieee80211_start_scan() even
in the hardware scan case.

10 years agob43: Fix throughput regression

b43: Fix throughput regression

Commit c7ab5ef9bcd281135c21b4732c9be779585181be entitled "b43: implement
short slot and basic rate handling" reduced the transmit throughput for
my BCM4311 device from 18 Mb/s to 0.7 Mb/s. The basic rate handling
portion is OK, the problem is in the short slot handling.

Prior to this change, the short slot enable/disable routines were never
called. Experimentation showed that the critical part was changing the
value at offset 0x0010 in the shared memory. This is supposed to contain
the 802.11 Slot Time in usec, but if it is changed from its initial value
of zero, performance is destroyed. On the other hand, changing the value
in the MMIO register corresponding to the Interframe Slot Time increased
performance from 18 to 22 Mb/s. A BCM4306/3 also shows dramatic
improvement of the transmit rate from 5.3 to 19.0 Mb/s.

Other changes in the patch include removal of the magic number for the
MMIO register, and allowing the slot time to be set for any PHY operating
in the 2.4 GHz band. Previously, the routine was executed only for G PHYs.
