   this and marks the station as asleep
 * when the station is marked asleep, the microcode

   before sending out the poll response frames. This
   is handled partially in the driver and partially in
   mac80211.

In order to do all this correctly, we need to
 * keep track of how many frames are pending for each
   associated client station (avoid doing it for other
   stations to avoid the atomic ops)
 * tell mac80211 that we driver-block the PS status

iwlwifi: validate enhanced tx power entry

Validate enhanced tx power entry read from EEPROM before applying the
tx power value. Different versions of EEPROM might contain different size
of table; always a good idea to make sure the entry is valid before
applying to the targeted channel.

Thanks guys, here an updated version then, before linkwatch surgery ?

In this version, I force the event to be sent synchronously.

[PATCH net-next-2.6] linkwatch: linkwatch_forget_dev() to speedup device dismantle

time ip link del eth3.103 ; time ip link del eth3.104 ; time ip link del eth3.105

user 0m0.000s
sys 0m0.000s

real 0m1.022s
user 0m0.000s
sys 0m0.000s

One problem of current schem in vlan dismantle phase is the
holding of device done by following chain :

vlan_dev_stop() ->
netif_carrier_off(dev) ->
linkwatch_fire_event(dev) ->
dev_hold() ...

And __linkwatch_run_queue() runs up to one second later...

A generic fix to this problem is to add a linkwatch_forget_dev() method
to unlink the device from the list of watched devices.

dev->link_watch_next becomes dev->link_watch_list (and use a bit more memory),
to be able to unlink device in O(1).

After patch :
time ip link del eth3.103 ; time ip link del eth3.104 ; time ip link del eth3.105

12 years agonet: Getting rid of the x86 dependency to built vmxnet3

net: Getting rid of the x86 dependency to built vmxnet3

This patch removes config dependency on x86 to build vmxnet3 driver. Thus
the driver can be built on big endian architectures now. Although vmxnet3
is not supported on VMs other than x86 architecture, all this code goes in
to ensure correctness. If the code is not dependent on x86, it should not
assume little endian architecture in any of its operations.

The netlink URELEASE notifier doesn't notify for
sockets that have been used to receive multicast
but it should be called for such sockets as well
since they might _also_ be used for sending and

that for nl80211 (generic netlink sockets) in the
