 23           cfg80211 is the Linux wireless LAN (802.11) configuration API.
 24           Enable this if you have a wireless device.
 25 
 26           For more information refer to documentation on the wireless wiki:

 28           http://wireless.kernel.org/en/developers/Documentation/cfg80211

 30           When built as a module it will be called cfg80211.

 34         depends on CFG80211
 35         help
 36           The nl80211 testmode command helps implementing things like
 37           factory calibration or validation tools for wireless chips.
 38 
 39           Select this option ONLY for kernels that are specifically
 40           built for such purposes.
 41 
 42           Debugging tools that are supposed to end up in the hands of
 43           users should better be implemented with debugfs.

 51         help
 52           This option enables some additional warnings that help
 53           cfg80211 developers and driver developers, but beware that
 54           they can also trigger due to races with userspace.
 55 
 56           For example, when a driver reports that it was disconnected
 57           from the AP, but the user disconnects manually at the same
 58           time, the warning might trigger spuriously due to races.
 59 
 60           Say Y only if you are developing cfg80211 or a driver based
 61           on it (or mac80211).

 67         default n
 68         ---help---
 69           You should disable this option unless you are both capable
 70           and willing to ensure your system will remain regulatory
 71           compliant with the features available under this option.
 72           Some options may still be under heavy development and
 73           for whatever reason regulatory compliance has not or
 74           cannot yet be verified. Regulatory verification may at
 75           times only be possible until you have the final system
 76           in place.
 77 
 78           This option should only be enabled by system integrators
 79           or distributions that have done work necessary to ensure
 80           regulatory certification on the system with the enabled
 81           features. Alternatively you can enable this option if
 82           you are a wireless researcher and are working in a controlled
 83           and approved environment by your local regulatory agency.
 84 
 85 config CFG80211_REG_CELLULAR_HINTS
 86         bool "cfg80211 regulatory support for cellular base station hints"
 87         depends on CFG80211_CERTIFICATION_ONUS
 88         ---help---
 89           This option enables support for parsing regulatory hints
 90           from cellular base stations. If enabled and at least one driver
 91           claims support for parsing cellular base station hints the
 92           regulatory core will allow and parse these regulatory hints.
 93           The regulatory core will only apply these regulatory hints on
 94           drivers that support this feature. You should only enable this
 95           feature if you have tested and validated this feature on your
 96           systems.
 97 
 98 config CFG80211_REG_RELAX_NO_IR
 99         bool "cfg80211 support for NO_IR relaxation"
100         depends on CFG80211_CERTIFICATION_ONUS
101         ---help---
102          This option enables support for relaxation of the NO_IR flag for
103          situations that certain regulatory bodies have provided clarifications
104          on how relaxation can occur. This feature has an inherent dependency on
105          userspace features which must have been properly tested and as such is
106          not enabled by default.
107 
108          A relaxation feature example is allowing the operation of a P2P group
109          owner (GO) on channels marked with NO_IR if there is an additional BSS
110          interface which associated to an AP which userspace assumes or confirms
111          to be an authorized master, i.e., with radar detection support and DFS
112          capabilities. However, note that in order to not create daisy chain
113          scenarios, this relaxation is not allowed in cases where the BSS client
114          is associated to P2P GO and in addition the P2P GO instantiated on
115          a channel due to this relaxation should not allow connection from
116          non P2P clients.
117 
118          The regulatory core will apply these relaxations only for drivers that
119          support this feature by declaring the appropriate channel flags and
120          capabilities in their registration flow.
121 
122 config CFG80211_DEFAULT_PS

125         default y
126         help
127           This option enables powersave mode by default.
128 
129           If this causes your applications to misbehave you should fix your
130           applications instead -- they need to register their network
131           latency requirement, see Documentation/power/pm_qos_interface.txt.

136         depends on DEBUG_FS
137         ---help---
138           You can enable this if you want debugfs entries for cfg80211.
139 
140           If unsure, say N.
141 
142 config CFG80211_INTERNAL_REGDB

144         default n
145         depends on CFG80211
146         ---help---
147           This option generates an internal data structure representing
148           the wireless regulatory rules described in net/wireless/db.txt
149           and includes code to query that database. This is an alternative
150           to using CRDA for defining regulatory rules for the kernel.
151 
152           Using this option requires some parsing of the db.txt at build time,
153           the parser will be upkept with the latest wireless-regdb updates but
154           older wireless-regdb formats will be ignored. The parser may later
155           be replaced to avoid issues with conflicts on versions of
156           wireless-regdb.

169           You should enable this option unless you know for sure you have no
170           need for it, for example when using internal regdb (above.)
