IEEE80211_IOCTL(9)		  BSD Kernel Developer's Manual 	       IEEE80211_IOCTL(9)

     ieee80211_cfgget, ieee80211_cfgset, ieee80211_ioctl -- 802.11 interface ioctl commands

     #include <net80211/ieee80211_var.h>
     #include <net80211/ieee80211_proto.h>
     #include <net80211/ieee80211_ioctl.h>

     ieee80211_cfgget(struct ieee80211com *ic, u_long cmd, void *data);

     ieee80211_cfgset(struct ieee80211com *ic, u_long cmd, void *data);

     ieee80211_ioctl(struct ieee80211com *ic, u_long cmd, void *data);

     These functions are typically invoked by drivers in response to requests for information or
     to change settings from the userland.

     The ieee80211_cfgget() and ieee80211_cfgset() functions implement a legacy interface for
     getting and setting 802.11 interface attributes respectively.  The interface is compatible
     with the RIDs implemented by the wi(4) driver and used by the wiconfig(8) utility.

     The ieee80211_ioctl() function implements ioctls such as key management for wireless
     devices.  Ioctls related to the Ethernet layer also pass through here, but are handed off to
     ether_ioctl() when no match for cmd is found.

     wi(4), ifconfig(8), wiconfig(8), ieee80211(9)

     The ieee80211 series of functions first appeared in NetBSD 1.5, and were later ported to
     FreeBSD 4.6.
