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

 79         help
 80           Say Y here to enable default bcast filtering configuration.
 81 
 82           Enabling broadcast filtering will drop any incoming wireless
 83           broadcast frames, except some very specific predefined
 84           patterns (e.g. incoming arp requests).
 85 
 86           If unsure, don't enable this option, as some programs might
 87           expect incoming broadcasts for their normal operations.

 91         depends on IWLMVM
 92         help
 93           Say Y here to enable U-APSD by default. This may cause
 94           interoperability problems with some APs, manifesting in lower than
 95           expected throughput due to those APs not enabling aggregation
 96

102         bool "Enable full debugging output in the iwlwifi driver"
103         ---help---
104           This option will enable debug tracing output for the iwlwifi drivers
105 
106           This will result in the kernel module being ~100k larger.  You can
107           control which debug output is sent to the kernel log by setting the
108           value in
109 
110                 /sys/module/iwlwifi/parameters/debug
111 
112           This entry will only exist if this option is enabled.
113 
114           To set a value, simply echo an 8-byte hex value to the same file:
115 
116                   % echo 0x43fff > /sys/module/iwlwifi/parameters/debug
117 
118           You can find the list of debug mask values in:
119                   drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/iwl-debug.h
120 
121           If this is your first time using this driver, you should say Y here
122           as the debug information can assist others in helping you resolve
123           any problems you may encounter.
124 
125 config IWLWIFI_DEBUGFS
126         bool "iwlwifi debugfs support"

128         ---help---
129           Enable creation of debugfs files for the iwlwifi drivers. This
130           is a low-impact option that allows getting insight into the
131           driver's state at runtime.
132 
133 config IWLWIFI_DEBUG_EXPERIMENTAL_UCODE
134         bool "Experimental uCode support"
135         depends on IWLWIFI_DEBUG

137           Enable use of experimental ucode for testing and debugging.
138 
139 config IWLWIFI_DEVICE_TRACING
140         bool "iwlwifi device access tracing"
141         depends on EVENT_TRACING
142         help
143           Say Y here to trace all commands, including TX frames and IO
144           accesses, sent to the device. If you say yes, iwlwifi will
145           register with the ftrace framework for event tracing and dump
146           all this information to the ringbuffer, you may need to
147           increase the ringbuffer size. See the ftrace documentation
148           for more information.
149 
150           When tracing is not enabled, this option still has some
151           (though rather small) overhead.
152 
153           If unsure, say Y so we can help you better when problems
154           occur.
