+config WIRELESS_EXT
+ bool "Wireless extensions"
+ default n
+ ---help---
+ This option enables the legacy wireless extensions
+ (wireless network interface configuration via ioctls.)
+
+ Wireless extensions will be replaced by cfg80211 and
+ will be required only by legacy drivers that implement
+ wireless extension handlers.
+
+ Say N (if you can) unless you know you need wireless
+ extensions for external modules.
+
+config NET_WIRELESS_RTNETLINK
+ bool "Wireless Extension API over RtNetlink"
+ depends on WIRELESS_EXT
+ ---help---
+ Support the Wireless Extension API over the RtNetlink socket
+ in addition to the traditional ioctl interface (selected above).
+
+ For now, few tools use this facility, but it might grow in the
+ future. The only downside is that it adds 4.5 kB to your kernel.
