For now, leave CONFIG_IPW2200_PROMISCUOUS stuff alone.  Eventually
migrate it to cfg80211 when the add/del/change_virtual_intf methods

("iwlwifi: clean up unused NL80211_IFTYPE_MONITOR for Monitor mode")
broke injection of non-broadcast frames to unassociated stations
(causing a SYSASSERT for all such injected frames), due to injected
frames no longer automatically getting a broadcast station ID assigned.
This patch restores the old behavior, fixing the aforementioned
regression.

Also, consistently check for IEEE80211_TX_CTL_INJECTED instead of
iwl_is_monitor_mode in the TX path, as TX_CTL_INJECTED specifically
means that a given packet is coming from a monitor interface, while
iwl_is_monitor_mode only shows whether a monitor interface exists
on the device.

mac80211: remove tasklet enable/disable

Due to the way the tasklets work in mac80211 there's
no need to ever disable them.

However, we need to clear the pending packets when
taking down the last interface because otherwise
the tx_pending_tasklet might be queued if the
driver mucks with the queues (which it shouldn't).

I've had a situation occasionally with ar9170 in
which ksoftirq was using 100% CPU time because
a disabled tasklet was scheduled, and I think that
was due to ar9170 receiving a packet while the
tasklet was disabled. That's strange and it really
should not do that for other reasons, but there's
no need to waste that much CPU time over it, it
should just warn instead.

10 years agocfg80211: clean up properly on interface type change
Johannes Berg [Fri, 21 Aug 2009 12:51:05 +0000]
cfg80211: clean up properly on interface type change

When the interface type changes while connected, and the
driver does not require the interface to be down for a
type change, it is currently possible to get very strange
results unless the driver takes special care, which it
shouldn't have to.

To fix this, take care to disconnect/leave IBSS when
changing the interface type -- even if the driver may fail
the call. Also process all events that may be pending to
avoid running into a situation where an event is reported
but only processed after the type has already changed,
which would lead to missing events and warnings.

A side effect of this is that you will have disconnected
or left the IBSS even if the mode change ultimately fails,
but since the intention was to change it and thus leave or
disconnect, this is not a problem.

10 years agocfg80211: make spurious warnings less likely, configurable
Johannes Berg [Fri, 21 Aug 2009 10:23:49 +0000]
cfg80211: make spurious warnings less likely, configurable

Bob reported that he got warnings in IBSS mode about
the ssid_len being zero on a joined event, but only
when kmemcheck was enabled. This appears to be due
to a race condition between drivers and userspace,
when the driver reports joined but the user in the
meantime decided to leave the IBSS again, the warning
would trigger. This was made more likely by kmemcheck
delaying the code that does the check and sends the
event.

So first, make the warning trigger closer to the
driver, which means it's not locked, but since only
the warning depends on it that's ok.

And secondly, users will not want to have spurious
warnings at all, so make those that are known to be
racy in such a way configurable.

mac80211: fix configure_filter invocation after stop

Since configure_filter can sleep now, any multicast

configure_filter which may lead to driver hangs and is

Since there are various places that call drv_stop, and

p54: fix broadcast buffering in AP mode

The patch "mac80211: fix PS-poll response race" somehow broke
broadcast buffering in a funny way.

During normal operation - stations are awake - the firmware refused
to transmit broadcast frames and reported P54_TX_PSM_CANCELLED.
But everything worked as soon as one station entered PSM.

The reason:
The stack sets IEEE80211_TX_CTL_SEND_AFTER_DTIM for outgoing
broadcast frames as soon as a station is marked as sleeping.
This flag triggers a path which will reroute these frames
into p54's "content after beacon" queue, which is designed
to cope with the demands for psm.

This patch restores the old behavior.

IEEE80211_TX_CTL_CLEAR_PS_FILT will once again be used to signalize
the firmware to ignore the ps canceling for certain frames.

10 years agonetxen: bridged mode optimizations
Narender Kumar [Mon, 24 Aug 2009 19:23:28 +0000]
netxen: bridged mode optimizations

When the interface is put in bridged mode, destination mac
addresses are unknown to firmware. So packets take a slow
path (lower priority) in firmware reducing performance.

Firmware can cache limited number of remote unicast mac
addresses for certain interval, if "dynamic mac learning"
mode is enabled.

Driver needs to enable this "mac learning" mode in firmware.
Currently this is done through net device class sysfs entry,
possibly this can also be done upon netlink notifications to
from bridge.

until it finds a transport that works for a given address.
Now, each transport registers for a specific transport slot,
and these are ordered so that preferred transports come first,
and then if they are not loaded, other transports are queried.
