2008-10-26wireless: fix regression caused by regulatory config optionArjan van de Ven1-6/+5
The default for the regulatory compatibility option is wrong; if you picked the default you ended up with a non-functional wifi system (at least I did on Fedora 9 with iwl4965). I don't think even the October 2008 releases of the various distros has the new userland so clearly the default is wrong, and also we can't just go about deleting this in 2.6.29... Change the default to "y" and also adjust the config text a little to reflect this. This patch fixes regression #11859 With thanks to Johannes Berg for the diagnostics Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2008-09-15cfg80211: Add new wireless regulatory infrastructureLuis R. Rodriguez1-0/+32
This adds the new wireless regulatory infrastructure. The main motiviation behind this was to centralize regulatory code as each driver was implementing their own regulatory solution, and to replace the initial centralized code we have where: * only 3 regulatory domains are supported: US, JP and EU * regulatory domains can only be changed through module parameter * all rules were built statically in the kernel We now have support for regulatory domains for many countries and regulatory domains are now queried through a userspace agent through udev allowing distributions to update regulatory rules without updating the kernel. Each driver can regulatory_hint() a regulatory domain based on either their EEPROM mapped regulatory domain value to a respective ISO/IEC 3166-1 country code or pass an internally built regulatory domain. We also add support to let the user set the regulatory domain through userspace in case of faulty EEPROMs to further help compliance. Support for world roaming will be added soon for cards capable of this. For more information see: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/developers/Regulatory/CRDA For now we leave an option to enable the old module parameter, ieee80211_regdom, and to build the 3 old regdomains statically (US, JP and EU). This option is CONFIG_WIRELESS_OLD_REGULATORY. These old static definitions and the module parameter is being scheduled for removal for 2.6.29. Note that if you use this you won't make use of a world regulatory domain as its pointless. If you leave this option enabled and if CRDA is present and you use US or JP we will try to ask CRDA to update us a regulatory domain for us. Signed-off-by: Luis R.

2008-09-02net/wireless/Kconfig: clarify the description for CONFIG_WIRELESS_EXT_SYSFSFlorian Mickler1-1/+2
Current setup with hal and NetworkManager will fail to work without newest hal version with this config option disabled. Although this will solve itself by time, at the moment it is dishonest to say that we don't know any software that uses it, if there are many many people relying on old hal versions.

2008-07-14wext: make sysfs bits optional and deprecate themJohannes Berg1-0/+11
The /sys/class/net/*/wireless/ direcory is, as far as I know, not used by anyone. Additionally, the same data is available via wext ioctls. Hence the sysfs files are pretty much useless. This patch makes them optional and schedules them for removal. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes@sipsolutions.net> Cc: Jean Tourrilhes <jt@hpl.hp.com> Signed-off-by: John W.

2007-04-25[WIRELESS] cfg80211: New wireless config infrastructure.Johannes Berg1-0/+3
This patch creates the core cfg80211 code along with some sysfs bits. This is a stripped down version to allow mac80211 to function, but doesn't include any configuration yet except for creating and removing virtual interfaces. This patch includes the nl80211 header file but it only contains the interface types which the cfg80211 interface for creating virtual interfaces relies on.

2007-04-25[WIRELESS]: Refactor wireless Kconfig.Johannes Berg1-0/+23
