+ bool "Old wireless static regulatory defintions"
+ default n
+ ---help---
+ This option enables the old static regulatory information
+ and uses it within the new framework. This is available
+ temporarily as an option to help prevent immediate issues
+ due to the switch to the new regulatory framework which
+ does require a new userspace application which has the
+ database of regulatory information (CRDA) and another for
+ setting regulatory domains (iw).
+ For more information see:
+ http://wireless.kernel.org/en/developers/Regulatory/CRDA
+ http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Documentation/iw
+ It is important to note though that if you *do* have CRDA present
+ and if this option is enabled CRDA *will* be called to update the
+ regulatory domain (for US and JP only). Support for letting the user
+ set the regulatory domain through iw is also supported. This option
+ mainly exists to leave around for a kernel release some old static
+ regulatory domains that were defined and to keep around the old
+ ieee80211_regdom module parameter. This is being phased out and you
+ should stop using them ASAP.
+ Say N unless you cannot install a new userspace application
+ or have one currently depending on the ieee80211_regdom module
+ parameter and cannot port it to use the new userspace interfaces.
+ This is scheduled for removal for 2.6.29.
