Jouni Malinen [Sat, 22 Nov 2008 20:00:31 +0000]
nl80211: Change max TX power to be in mBm instead of dBm

In order to be consistent with NL80211_ATTR_POWER_RULE_MAX_EIRP,
change NL80211_FREQUENCY_ATTR_MAX_TX_POWER to use mBm and U32 instead
of dBm and U8. This is a userspace interface change, but the previous
version had not yet been pushed upstream and there are no userspace
programs using this yet, so there is justification to get this change in
as long as it goes in before the previous version gets out.

When the option is not selected and PM_SLEEP is configured, then
cache firmware in the suspend pm_notifier. This configuration saves
about 64k RAM in normal use, but can lead to a situation where the

ath9k: Handle -ENOMEM on RX gracefully

We would get an oops on RX on -ENOMEM by passing
NULL to the hardware on ath_rx_buf_link(). The oops
would look something like this:

ath_rx_tasklet+0x515/0x53b
ath9k_tasklet+0x48
tasklet_action
__do_softirq
irq_exit
do_IRQ

RIP: ath_rx_buf_link+0x3a

We correct this by handling the requeue directly on
the ath_rx_tasklet() and trying to allocate an skb
*prior* to sending up the last hardware processed
skb. If we run out of memory this gauranteees we have

11 years agorfkill: always call get_state() hook on resume
Henrique de Moraes Holschuh [Fri, 21 Nov 2008 22:40:10 +0000]
rfkill: always call get_state() hook on resume

We "optimize" away the get_state() hook call on rfkill_toggle_radio
when doing a forced state change.  This means the resume path is not
calling get_state() as it should.

Call it manually on the resume handler, as we don't want to mess with
the EPO path by removing the optimization.  This has the added benefit
of making it explicit that rfkill->state could have been modified
before we hit the rfkill_toggle_radio() call in the class resume
handler.

11 years agorfkill: preserve state across suspend
Henrique de Moraes Holschuh [Fri, 21 Nov 2008 22:40:09 +0000]
rfkill: preserve state across suspend

The rfkill class API requires that the driver connected to a class
call rfkill_force_state() on resume to update the real state of the
rfkill controller, OR that it provides a get_state() hook.

This means there is potentially a hidden call in the resume code flow
that changes rfkill->state (i.e. rfkill_force_state()), so the
previous state of the transmitter was being lost.

The simplest and most future-proof way to fix this is to explicitly
store the pre-sleep state on the rfkill structure, and restore from
that on resume.

rt2x00: Detect USB BULK in/out endpoints

Instead of hardcoding the used in/out endpoints
we should detect them by walking through all
available endpoints.

rt2800usb will gain the most out of this, because
the legacy drivers indicate that there are multiple
endpoints available.
However this code might benefit at least rt73usb as
well for the MIMO queues, and if we are really lucky
rt2500usb will benefit because for the TX and PRIO
queues.

Even if rt2500usb and rt73usb do not get better performance
after this patch, the endpoint detection still belongs to
rt2x00usb, and it shouldn't hurt to always try to detect

the hardware is registered with mac80211. The mac80211 start callback

The same race condition is also possible for RKFILL registration
as RFKILL init happens after the device registration with mac80211

11 years agocfg80211/mac80211: Add 802.11d support
Luis R. Rodriguez [Wed, 12 Nov 2008 22:22:02 +0000]
cfg80211/mac80211: Add 802.11d support

This adds country IE parsing to mac80211 and enables its usage
within the new regulatory infrastructure in cfg80211. We parse
the country IEs only on management beacons for the BSSID you are
associated to and disregard the IEs when the country and environment
(indoor, outdoor, any) matches the already processed country IE.

To avoid following misinformed or outdated APs we build and use
a regulatory domain out of the intersection between what the AP
provides us on the country IE and what CRDA is aware is allowed
on the same country.

A secondary device is allowed to follow only the same country IE
as it make no sense for two devices on a system to be in two
different countries.

In the case the AP is using country IEs for an incorrect country
the user may help compliance further by setting the regulatory
domain before or after the IE is parsed and in that case another
intersection will be performed.

CONFIG_WIRELESS_OLD_REGULATORY is supported but requires CRDA
present.

kobject_uevent_env() can return an error but it just tells us

nor does it tell us if CRDA was present or not. So remove
the informative complaint about it assuming it will tell us
such things.

Note that you can determine if CRDA is present after loading cfg80211
by using:

is_old_static_regdom(cfg80211_regdomain)

but this doesn't account for possible user install after initial

rt2x00: Fix TX failure path

The callback function write_tx_data() can only fail
when our ENTRY_OWNER_DEVICE_DATA flag on a queue entry
failed to determine the entry was not available and
it is in fact still owned by the hardware.
This means that if that function fails the queue
must be stopped in mac80211.

When rt2x00queue_get_queue() returns NULL in the TX
path, it means mac80211 has passed us an invalid queue,
although this should be impossible, it shouldn't hurt
if we send mac80211 a signal to stop the queue either.

Both issues can simply be resolved by removing their
manual failure handler and making them use the failure path
provided in rt2x00mac_tx().
