STRUCT 
IEEE80211_CON(9) The basic mac80211 driver inte STRUCT IEEE80211_CON(9) NAME
struct_ieee80211_conf - configuration of the device SYNOPSIS
struct ieee80211_conf { u32 flags; int power_level; int dynamic_ps_timeout; int max_sleep_period; u16 listen_interval; u8 ps_dtim_period; u8 long_frame_max_tx_count; u8 short_frame_max_tx_count; struct cfg80211_chan_def chandef; bool radar_enabled; enum ieee80211_smps_mode smps_mode; }; MEMBERS
flags configuration flags defined above power_level requested transmit power (in dBm), backward compatibility value only that is set to the minimum of all interfaces dynamic_ps_timeout The dynamic powersave timeout (in ms), see the powersave documentation below. This variable is valid only when the CONF_PS flag is set. max_sleep_period the maximum number of beacon intervals to sleep for before checking the beacon for a TIM bit (managed mode only); this value will be only achievable between DTIM frames, the hardware needs to check for the multicast traffic bit in DTIM beacons. This variable is valid only when the CONF_PS flag is set. listen_interval listen interval in units of beacon interval ps_dtim_period The DTIM period of the AP we're connected to, for use in power saving. Power saving will not be enabled until a beacon has been received and the DTIM period is known. long_frame_max_tx_count Maximum number of transmissions for a "long" frame (a frame not RTS protected), called "dot11LongRetryLimit" in 802.11, but actually means the number of transmissions not the number of retries short_frame_max_tx_count Maximum number of transmissions for a "short" frame, called "dot11ShortRetryLimit" in 802.11, but actually means the number of transmissions not the number of retries chandef the channel definition to tune to radar_enabled whether radar detection is enabled smps_mode spatial multiplexing powersave mode; note that IEEE80211_SMPS_STATIC is used when the device is not configured for an HT channel. Note that this is only valid if channel contexts are not used, otherwise each channel context has the number of chains listed. DESCRIPTION
This struct indicates how the driver shall configure the hardware. AUTHOR

STRUCT 
IEEE80211_HW(9) The basic mac80211 driver inte STRUCT IEEE80211_HW(9) NAME
struct_ieee80211_hw - hardware information and state SYNOPSIS
struct ieee80211_hw { struct ieee80211_conf conf; struct wiphy * wiphy; const char * rate_control_algorithm; void * priv; u32 flags; unsigned int extra_tx_headroom; int channel_change_time; int vif_data_size; int sta_data_size; u16 queues; u16 max_listen_interval; s8 max_signal; u8 max_rates; u8 max_rate_tries; }; MEMBERS
conf struct ieee80211_conf, device configuration, don't use. wiphy This points to the struct wiphy allocated for this 802.11 PHY. You must fill in the perm_addr and dev members of this structure using SET_IEEE80211_DEV and SET_IEEE80211_PERM_ADDR. Additionally, all supported bands (with channels, bitrates) are registered here. rate_control_algorithm rate control algorithm for this hardware. If unset (NULL), the default algorithm will be used. Must be set before calling ieee80211_register_hw. priv pointer to private area that was allocated for driver use along with this structure. flags hardware flags, see enum ieee80211_hw_flags. extra_tx_headroom headroom to reserve in each transmit skb for use by the driver (e.g. for transmit headers.) channel_change_time time (in microseconds) it takes to change channels. vif_data_size size (in bytes) of the drv_priv data area within struct ieee80211_vif. sta_data_size size (in bytes) of the drv_priv data area within struct ieee80211_sta. queues number of available hardware transmit queues for data packets. WMM/QoS requires at least four, these queues need to have configurable access parameters. max_listen_interval max listen interval in units of beacon interval that HW supports max_signal Maximum value for signal (rssi) in RX information, used only when IEEE80211_HW_SIGNAL_UNSPEC or IEEE80211_HW_SIGNAL_DB max_rates maximum number of alternate rate retry stages max_rate_tries maximum number of tries for each stage DESCRIPTION
This structure contains the configuration and hardware information for an 802.11 PHY. AUTHOR
