 12           Intel Wireless WiFi Link Next-Gen AGN
 13 
 14           This option enables support for use with the following hardware:
 15                 Intel Wireless WiFi Link 6250AGN Adapter
 16                 Intel 6000 Series Wi-Fi Adapters (6200AGN and 6300AGN)
 17                 Intel WiFi Link 1000BGN
 18                 Intel Wireless WiFi 5150AGN
 19                 Intel Wireless WiFi 5100AGN, 5300AGN, and 5350AGN
 20                 Intel 6005 Series Wi-Fi Adapters
 21                 Intel 6030 Series Wi-Fi Adapters
 22                 Intel Wireless WiFi Link 6150BGN 2 Adapter

 24                 Intel 2000 Series Wi-Fi Adapters
 25                 Intel 7260 Wi-Fi Adapter
 26                 Intel 3160 Wi-Fi Adapter
 27 
 28 
 29           This driver uses the kernel's mac80211 subsystem.
 30 
 31           In order to use this driver, you will need a microcode (uCode)
 32           image for it. You can obtain the microcode from:
 33 
 34                   <http://intellinuxwireless.org/>.
 35 
 36           The microcode is typically installed in /lib/firmware. You can
 37           look in the hotplug script /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent to
 38           determine which directory FIRMWARE_DIR is set to when the script
 39           runs.
 40 
 41           If you want to compile the driver as a module ( = code which can be
 42           inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you want),
 43           say M here and read <file:Documentation/kbuild/modules.txt>.  The
 44           module will be called iwlwifi.

 50         help
 51           This is the driver that supports the DVM firmware which is
 52           used by most existing devices (with the exception of 7260
 53           and 3160).
 54 
 55 config IWLMVM
 56         tristate "Intel Wireless WiFi MVM Firmware support"
 57         depends on IWLWIFI
 58         help
 59           This is the driver that supports the MVM firmware which is
 60           currently only available for 7260 and 3160 devices.

 74         help
 75           Say Y here to enable default bcast filtering configuration.
 76 
 77           Enabling broadcast filtering will drop any incoming wireless
 78           broadcast frames, except some very specific predefined
 79           patterns (e.g. incoming arp requests).
 80 
 81           If unsure, don't enable this option, as some programs might
 82           expect incoming broadcasts for their normal operations.

 87 config IWLWIFI_DEBUG
 88         bool "Enable full debugging output in the iwlwifi driver"
 89         depends on IWLWIFI
 90         ---help---
 91           This option will enable debug tracing output for the iwlwifi drivers
 92 
 93           This will result in the kernel module being ~100k larger.  You can
 94           control which debug output is sent to the kernel log by setting the
 95           value in
 96 
 97                 /sys/module/iwlwifi/parameters/debug
 98 
 99           This entry will only exist if this option is enabled.
100 
101           To set a value, simply echo an 8-byte hex value to the same file:
102 
103                   % echo 0x43fff > /sys/module/iwlwifi/parameters/debug
104 
105           You can find the list of debug mask values in:
106                   drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/iwl-debug.h
107 
108           If this is your first time using this driver, you should say Y here
109           as the debug information can assist others in helping you resolve
110           any problems you may encounter.
111 
112 config IWLWIFI_DEBUGFS
113         bool "iwlwifi debugfs support"

115         ---help---
116           Enable creation of debugfs files for the iwlwifi drivers. This
117           is a low-impact option that allows getting insight into the
118           driver's state at runtime.
119 
120 config IWLWIFI_DEBUG_EXPERIMENTAL_UCODE
121         bool "Experimental uCode support"
122         depends on IWLWIFI && IWLWIFI_DEBUG

124           Enable use of experimental ucode for testing and debugging.
125 
126 config IWLWIFI_DEVICE_TRACING
127 
128         bool "iwlwifi device access tracing"
129         depends on IWLWIFI
130         depends on EVENT_TRACING
131         help
132           Say Y here to trace all commands, including TX frames and IO
133           accesses, sent to the device. If you say yes, iwlwifi will
134           register with the ftrace framework for event tracing and dump
135           all this information to the ringbuffer, you may need to
136           increase the ringbuffer size. See the ftrace documentation
137           for more information.
138 
139           When tracing is not enabled, this option still has some
140           (though rather small) overhead.
141 
142           If unsure, say Y so we can help you better when problems
143           occur.
