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_VIF(9) The basic mac80211 driver inte STRUCT IEEE80211_VIF(9) NAME
struct_ieee80211_vif - per-interface data SYNOPSIS
struct ieee80211_vif { enum nl80211_iftype type; struct ieee80211_bss_conf bss_conf; u8 addr[ETH_ALEN]; bool p2p; u8 cab_queue; u8 hw_queue[IEEE80211_NUM_ACS]; struct ieee80211_chanctx_conf __rcu * chanctx_conf; u32 driver_flags; #ifdef CONFIG_MAC80211_DEBUGFS struct dentry * debugfs_dir; #endif u8 drv_priv[0]; }; MEMBERS
type type of this virtual interface bss_conf BSS configuration for this interface, either our own or the BSS we're associated to addr[ETH_ALEN] address of this interface p2p indicates whether this AP or STA interface is a p2p interface, i.e. a GO or p2p-sta respectively cab_queue content-after-beacon (DTIM beacon really) queue, AP mode only hw_queue[IEEE80211_NUM_ACS] hardware queue for each AC chanctx_conf The channel context this interface is assigned to, or NULL when it is not assigned. This pointer is RCU-protected due to the TX path needing to access it; even though the netdev carrier will always be off when it is NULL there can still be races and packets could be processed after it switches back to NULL. driver_flags flags/capabilities the driver has for this interface, these need to be set (or cleared) when the interface is added or, if supported by the driver, the interface type is changed at runtime, mac80211 will never touch this field debugfs_dir debugfs dentry, can be used by drivers to create own per interface debug files. Note that it will be NULL for the virtual monitor interface (if that is requested.) drv_priv[0] data area for driver use, will always be aligned to sizeof(void *). DESCRIPTION
Data in this structure is continually present for driver use during the life of a virtual interface. AUTHOR
