IEEE80211_STA_EOSP(9)					     Advanced driver interface					     IEEE80211_STA_EOSP(9)

NAME
ieee80211_sta_eosp - notify mac80211 about end of SP SYNOPSIS
void ieee80211_sta_eosp(struct ieee80211_sta * pubsta); ARGUMENTS
pubsta the station DESCRIPTION
When a device transmits frames in a way that it can't tell mac80211 in the TX status about the EOSP, it must clear the IEEE80211_TX_STATUS_EOSP bit and call this function instead. This applies for PS-Poll as well as uAPSD. Note that just like with _tx_status and _rx drivers must not mix calls to irqsafe/non-irqsafe versions, this function must not be mixed with those either. Use the all irqsafe, or all non-irqsafe, don't mix! NB
the _irqsafe version of this function doesn't exist, no driver needs it right now. Don't call this function if you'd need the _irqsafe version, look at the git history and restore the _irqsafe version! AUTHOR

enum_ieee80211_filter_flags - hardware filter flags SYNOPSIS
enum ieee80211_filter_flags { FIF_PROMISC_IN_BSS, FIF_ALLMULTI, FIF_FCSFAIL, FIF_PLCPFAIL, FIF_BCN_PRBRESP_PROMISC, FIF_CONTROL, FIF_OTHER_BSS, FIF_PSPOLL, FIF_PROBE_REQ }; CONSTANTS
FIF_PROMISC_IN_BSS promiscuous mode within your BSS, think of the BSS as your network segment and then this corresponds to the regular ethernet device promiscuous mode. FIF_ALLMULTI pass all multicast frames, this is used if requested by the user or if the hardware is not capable of filtering by multicast address. FIF_FCSFAIL pass frames with failed FCS (but you need to set the RX_FLAG_FAILED_FCS_CRC for them) FIF_PLCPFAIL pass frames with failed PLCP CRC (but you need to set the RX_FLAG_FAILED_PLCP_CRC for them FIF_BCN_PRBRESP_PROMISC This flag is set during scanning to indicate to the hardware that it should not filter beacons or probe responses by BSSID. Filtering them can greatly reduce the amount of processing mac80211 needs to do and the amount of CPU wakeups, so you should honour this flag if possible. FIF_CONTROL pass control frames (except for PS Poll), if PROMISC_IN_BSS is not set then only those addressed to this station. FIF_OTHER_BSS pass frames destined to other BSSes FIF_PSPOLL pass PS Poll frames, if PROMISC_IN_BSS is not set then only those addressed to this station. FIF_PROBE_REQ pass probe request frames HW QUEUE CONTROL
These flags determine what the filter in hardware should be programmed to let through and what should not be passed to the stack. It is always safe to pass more frames than requested, but this has negative impact on power consumption. AUTHOR
