cfg80211: add channel switch notify event
Thomas Pedersen [Fri, 6 Apr 2012 20:35:47 +0000 (13:35 -0700)]
The firmware may decide to switch channels while already beaconing, e.g.
in response to a cfg80211 connect request on a different vif. Add this
event to notify userspace when an AP or GO interface has successfully
migrated to a new channel, so it can update its configuration
accordingly.
