ieee80211_get_buffered_bc(9) [centos man page]

IEEE80211_GET_BUFFER(9) 				     Advanced driver interface					   IEEE80211_GET_BUFFER(9)

NAME
ieee80211_get_buffered_bc - accessing buffered broadcast and multicast frames SYNOPSIS
struct sk_buff * ieee80211_get_buffered_bc(struct ieee80211_hw * hw, struct ieee80211_vif * vif); ARGUMENTS
hw pointer as obtained from ieee80211_alloc_hw. vif struct ieee80211_vif pointer from the add_interface callback. DESCRIPTION
Function for accessing buffered broadcast and multicast frames. If hardware/firmware does not implement buffering of broadcast/multicast frames when power saving is used, 802.11 code buffers them in the host memory. The low-level driver uses this function to fetch next buffered frame. In most cases, this is used when generating beacon frame. RETURN
A pointer to the next buffered skb or NULL if no more buffered frames are available. NOTE
buffered frames are returned only after DTIM beacon frame was generated with ieee80211_beacon_get and the low-level driver must thus call ieee80211_beacon_get first. ieee80211_get_buffered_bc returns NULL if the previous generated beacon was not DTIM, so the low-level driver does not need to check for DTIM beacons separately and should be able to use common code for all beacons.
