10 years agoRevert "iwlwifi: do not perferm force reset while doing scan"
Stanislaw Gruszka [Wed, 6 Oct 2010 09:22:13 +0000]
Revert "iwlwifi: do not perferm force reset while doing scan"

This reverts commit 7acc7c683a747689aaaaad4fce1683fc3f85e552. It was
applied to avoid possible warning in ieee80211_restart_hw, however
reason of the warning were races in mac80211, currently hopefully fixed.

Not reseting device when performing scan is bad for two reasons.

When forcing reset from iwl_check_stuck_queue(), in case of fail,
reset will be repeated until scan finish. But since firmware is in bad
shape, scan only finish after scan_check work (about 7s). So we will
delay the reset, what is not good behaviour.

When forcing reset from iwl_recover_from_statistics(), we will not
repeat the reset, so we will not perform reset at all when needed.

mac80211: assure we also cancel deferred scan request

This is partial revert and fix for commit
85f72bc839705294b32b6c16b491c0422f0a71b3 "mac80211: only cancel
software-based scans on suspend"

When cfg80211 request the scan and mac80211 perform some management work,
we defer the scan request. We do not canceling such requests when calling
ieee80211_scan_cancel(), because of SCAN_SW_SCANNING bit check just
before the call. So fix that problem.

Another problem, which commit 85f72bc839705294b32b6c16b491c0422f0a71b3
tries to solve, is we can not cancel HW scan. Hence patch make
ieee80211_scan_cancel() ignore HW scan (see code comments). Keeping
local->mtx lock assures that the deferred scan will not become

We never delete the addBA response timer, which
is typically fine, but if the station it belongs
to is deleted very quickly after starting the BA
session, before the peer had a chance to reply,
the timer may fire after the station struct has

the timer in a suitable spot -- best when the

10 years agort2x00: Work around hw aggregation oddity in rt2800
Helmut Schaa [Sat, 2 Oct 2010 09:34:56 +0000]
rt2x00: Work around hw aggregation oddity in rt2800

If a frame is not meant to be sent as AMPDU or part of it the hw might
still decide to aggregate this frame if a previous frame started an
AMPDU. However, this will limit the usefulness of the reported tx rate
since the reported rate will be the one specified in the TXWI of the
first frame and thus it is not possible to reliably caculate the
number of retrys by substracting the reported tx rate from the tx rate
in the TXWI.

To fix this issue, only report the successful rate for frames that were
not meant to be aggregated but ended up in an aggregate.

Example:
Frame A (MCS7, AMPDU=1) B (MCS7, AMPDU=1) C (MCS12, AMDPU=0, PROBE_RATE)

Although frame C shoudn't be aggregated the hw might sill put it
into an AMPDU together with A and B. If the transmission succeeds the tx
status will contain MCS7 for all three frames. In that case we should
only report MCS7 as success rate and avoid reporting MCS12-MCS8 as
failed tx attempts as this will affect the future rate control
decisions.

This oddity might strike us in other scenarious as well but the most
common "wrong" report happened for frames used to probe a different tx
rate.

This improves the rate control decisions notable.

10 years agort2x00: Improve TX status entry validation
Ivo van Doorn [Sat, 2 Oct 2010 09:32:43 +0000]
rt2x00: Improve TX status entry validation

The TX_STA_FIFO contains some information for identifying
a outgoing frame, however matching by WCID and ACK status is
not sufficient to 100% identify the macthing queue_entry structure
(containing the SKB buffer) which belongs to the status report.

Within TX_STA_FIFO we have a 4-bit field named PACKETID, which is
currently used to encode the queue id. The queue ID is however
limited to values from 0 to 3, which means 2 bits are sufficient
to encode the value. With the remaining 2 bits we can encode a
partial queue_entry index number. The value of PACKETID is not
allowed to become 0, with the queue ID ranging from 0 to 3, at least
one of the bits for the entry identification must be 1.

That leaves us with 3 possible values we can still encode in the
bits. Altough this doesn't allow 100% accurate matching of the
TX_STA_FIFO queue to a queue_entry structure, it at least improves
the accuracy. This allows us to better detect if we have missed the
TX_STA_FIFO report, which in turn reduces the number of watchdog
warnings regarding the TX status timeout.

mac80211: distinct between max rates and the number of rates the hw can report

Some drivers cannot handle multiple retry rates specified by the rc
algorithm but instead use their own retry table (for example rt2800).
However, if such a device registers itself with a max_rates value of 1
the rc algorithm cannot make use of the extended information the device
can provide about retried rates. On the other hand, if a device
registers itself with a max_rates value > 1 the rc algorithm assumes
that the device can handle multi rate retries.

Fix this issue by introducing another hw parameter max_report_rates that
can be set to a different value then max_rates to indicate if a device
is capable of reporting more rates then specified in max_rates.

10 years agort2x00: rework tx status handling in rt2800pci
Helmut Schaa [Sat, 2 Oct 2010 09:27:35 +0000]
rt2x00: rework tx status handling in rt2800pci

This patch changes the way tx status reports are handled by rt2800pci.
Previously rt2800pci would sometimes lose tx status reports as the
TX_STA_FIFO register is a fifo of 16 entries that can overflow in case
we don't read it often/fast enough. Since interrupts are disabled in the
device during the execution of the interrupt thread it happend sometimes
under high network and CPU load that processing took too long and a few
tx status reports were dropped by the hw.

To fix this issue the TX_STA_FIFO register is read directly in the
interrupt handler and stored in a kfifo which is large enough to hold
all status reports of all used tx queues.

To process the status reports a new tasklet txstatus_tasklet is used.
Using the already used interrupt thread is not possible since we don't
want to disable the TX_FIFO_STATUS interrupt while processing them and
it is not possible to schedule the interrupt thread multiple times for
execution. A tasklet instead can be scheduled multiple times which
allows to leave the TX_FIFO_STATUS interrupt enabled while a previously
scheduled tasklet is still executing.

In short: All other interrupts are handled in the interrupt thread as
before. Only the TX_FIFO_STATUS interrupt is partly handled in the
interrupt handler and finished in the according tasklet.

One drawback of this patch is that it duplicates some code from
rt2800lib. However, that can be cleaned up in the future once the
rt2800usb and rt2800pci tx status handling converge more.

Using this patch on a Ralink RT3052 embedded board gives me a reliable
wireless connection even under high CPU and network load. I've
transferred several gigabytes without any queue lockups.

rt2x00: Don't overwrite beacon buffers in pairwise key setup

rt2800 devices use parts of the pariwise key table to store the beacon
frames for beacon 6 and 7. To not overwrite the beacon frame buffers
limit the number of entries we store in the pairwise key table to 222.

Juuso Oikarinen [Fri, 1 Oct 2010 13:02:31 +0000]
mac80211: Add validity check for beacon_crc value

On association to an AP, after receiving beacons, the beacon_crc value is set.
The beacon_crc value is not reset in disassociation, but the BSS data may be
expired at a later point. When associating again, it's possible that a
beacon for the AP is not received, resulting in the beacon_ies to remain NULL.

After association, further beacons will not update the beacon data, as the
crc value of the beacon has not changed, and the beacon_crc still holds a
value matching the beacon. The beacon_ies will remain forever null.

One of the results of this is that WLAN power save cannot be entered, the STA
will remain foreven in active mode.

Fix this by adding a validation flag for the beacon_crc, which is cleared on
association.

carl9170: support firmware-based rx filter

The hardware rx-filter was essentially disabled, because
of a serve, yet unidentifiable problem with iwlagn.
Due to these circumstances the driver and mac80211 were
left with the job of filtering.

This is very unfortunate and has proven to be expensive
in terms of latency, memory and load.

Therefore the new 1.8.8.3 firmware introduces a flexible
filtering infrastructure which allows the driver to
offload some of the checks (FCS & PLCP crc check,
RA match, control frame filter, etc...) whenever possible.

Note:
This patch also includes all changes to the

iwlwifi: send DC calib config to runtime ucode

Since uCode is responsible for doing DC calibration, there's no need
to let init uCode to do initial DC calibration then send results
back to driver, then driver sends the results to runtime uCode.
Driver can simply tell runtime uCode to do DC calibration.

Actually, this patch does not disable DC calib for init uCode. It just
prevent driver from saving and sending the DC calib results (from init
ucode) to runtime uCode. The driver still uses 0xffffffff in
CALIB_CFG_CMD for init ucode.

iwlagn: set CSR register for 6050g2 devices

For 6050g2 devices driver needs to set a special bit to CSR register
so that uCode can do things correctly in calibration routines.

10 years agoiwlwifi: add iwl_nic_ops structure to iwl_ops

iwlwifi: add iwl_nic_ops structure to iwl_ops

iwlwifi driver supports multiple devices. Since some device needs
special configuration we create a new iwl_nic_ops structure which is
configurable per device. Currently there is only one function pointer
inside this structure: additional_nic_config().

The iwl_nic_ops structure is added to the top level in struct iwl_ops,
making it easier to change per device. Duplication of the iwl_lib_ops
structure is no longer needed.

With this new ops the previous function pointer set_calib_version is
no longer needed since it is just a per device nic configuration.

As part of the code restructuring, a bug is addressed. Indication of
calib version to uCode is only needed for 6050 devices, however,
current implementation set calib version for all 6000 devices for
which DC calib is needed. To fix this, create iwl6050_ops for 6050
devices and only populate iwl_nic_ops in this structure.

10 years agomac80211: Fix WMM driver queue configuration
Juuso Oikarinen [Tue, 28 Sep 2010 11:39:32 +0000]
mac80211: Fix WMM driver queue configuration

The WMM parameter configuration function (ieee80211_sta_wmm_params) only
configures the WMM parameters to the driver is the wmm_last_param_set
counter value is changed by the AP.

The wmm_last_param_set is initialized to -1 on association in order to ensure
the configuration is made to the driver at least once on association, but
currently this initialization is done *after* the WMM parameter configuration
function was called.

This leads to unreliability in the driver getting properly configured on first
association (depending on what counter value the AP happens to use.) When
disassociating (the wmm default parameters are configured to the driver) and
then reassociating, due to the above the WMM configuration is not set to the
driver at all.

On drivers without beacon filtering the problem is corrected by later beacons,
but on drivers with beacon filtering the WMM will remain permanently incorrectly
configured.

Fix this by moving the initialization of wmm_last_param_set to -1 before
ieee80211_sta_wmm_params is called on association.
