nl80211: export supported commands
Johannes Berg [Sat, 14 Mar 2009 08:34:01 +0000 (09:34 +0100)]
This makes nl80211 export the supported commands (command groups)
per wiphy so userspace has an idea what it can do -- this will be
required reading for userspace when we introduce auth/assoc /or/
connect for older hardware that cannot separate auth and assoc.
