      mac80211: implement multicast forwarding on fast-RX path · bab10a54
      Johannes Berg authored
      commit eeb0d56f upstream.
      In AP (or VLAN) mode, when unicast 802.11 packets are received,
      they might actually be multicast after conversion. In this case
      the fast-RX path didn't handle them properly to send them back
      to the wireless medium. Implement that by copying the SKB and
      sending it back out.
      The possible alternative would be to just punt the packet back
      to the regular (slow) RX path, but since we have almost all of
      the required code here already it's not so complicated to add
      here. Punting it back would also mean acquiring the spinlock,
      which would be bad for the stated purpose of the fast-RX path,
      to enable well-performing parallel RX.

      mac80211: Move reorder-sensitive TX handlers to after TXQ dequeue · bb42f2d1
      Toke Høiland-Jørgensen authored
      The TXQ intermediate queues can cause packet reordering when more than
      one flow is active to a single station. Since some of the wifi-specific
      packet handling (notably sequence number and encryption handling) is
      sensitive to re-ordering, things break if they are applied before the
      This splits up the TX handlers and fast_xmit logic into two parts: An
      early part and a late part. The former is applied before TXQ enqueue,
      and the latter after dequeue. The non-TXQ path just applies both parts
      at once.
      Because fragments shouldn't be split up or reordered, the fragmentation
      handler is run after dequeue. Any fragments are then kept in the TXQ and
      on subsequent dequeues they take precedence over dequeueing from the FQ
      This approach avoids having to scatter special cases all over the place
      for when TXQ is enabled, at the cost of making the fast_xmit and TX
      handler code slightly more complex.

      cfg80211: add start / stop NAN commands · cb3b7d87
      Ayala Beker authored
      This allows user space to start/stop NAN interface.
      A NAN interface is like P2P device in a few aspects: it
      doesn't have a netdev associated to it.
      Add the new interface type and prevent operations that
      can't be executed on NAN interface like scan.
      Define several attributes that may be configured by user space
      when starting NAN functionality (master preference and dual

      mac80211: Use rhltable instead of rhashtable · 83e7e4ce
      Herbert Xu authored
      mac80211 currently uses rhashtable with insecure_elasticity set
      to true.  The latter is because of duplicate objects.  What's
      more, mac80211 walks the rhashtable chains by hand which is broken
      as rhashtable may contain multiple tables due to resizing or
      This patch fixes it by converting it to the newly added rhltable
      interface which is designed for use with duplicate objects.
      With rhltable a lookup returns a list of objects instead of a
      single one.  This is then fed into the existing for_each_sta_info
      This patch also deletes the sta_addr_hash function since rhashtable
      defaults to jhash.

      mac80211: implement fair queueing per txq · fa962b92
      Michal Kazior authored
      mac80211's software queues were designed to work
      very closely with device tx queues. They are
      required to make use of 802.11 packet aggregation
      easily and efficiently.
      Due to the way 802.11 aggregation is designed it
      only makes sense to keep fair queuing as close to
      hardware as possible to reduce induced latency and
      inertia and provide the best flow responsiveness.
      This change doesn't translate directly to
      immediate and significant gains. End result
      depends on driver's induced latency. Best results
      can be achieved if driver keeps its own tx
      queue/fifo fill level to a minimum.

      mac80211: allow software PS-Poll/U-APSD with AP_LINK_PS · 46fa38e8
      Johannes Berg authored
      When using RSS, frames might not be processed in the correct order,
      and thus AP_LINK_PS must be used; most likely with firmware keeping
      track of the powersave state, this is the case in iwlwifi now.
      In this case, the driver can use ieee80211_sta_ps_transition() to
      still have mac80211 manage powersave buffering. However, for U-APSD
      and PS-Poll this isn't sufficient. If the device can't manage that
      entirely on its own, mac80211's code should be used.
      To allow this, export two functions: ieee80211_sta_uapsd_trigger()
      and ieee80211_sta_pspoll().

      mac80211: enable collecting station statistics per-CPU · c9c5962b
      Johannes Berg authored
      If the driver advertises the new HW flag USE_RSS, make the
      station statistics on the fast-rx path per-CPU. This will
      enable calling the RX in parallel, only hitting locking or
      shared cachelines when the fast-RX path isn't available.

      mac80211: add fast-rx path · 49ddf8e6
      Johannes Berg authored
      The regular RX path has a lot of code, but with a few
      assumptions on the hardware it's possible to reduce the
      amount of code significantly. Currently the assumptions
      on the driver are the following:
       * hardware/driver reordering buffer (if supporting aggregation)
       * hardware/driver decryption & PN checking (if using encryption)
       * hardware/driver did de-duplication
       * hardware/driver did A-MSDU deaggregation
       * AP_LINK_PS is used (in AP mode)
       * no client powersave handling in mac80211 (in client mode)
      of which some are actually checked per packet:
       * de-duplication
       * PN checking
       * decryption
      and additionally packets must
       * not be A-MSDU (have been deaggregated by driver/device)
       * be data packets
       * not be fragmented
       * be unicast
       * have RFC 1042 header
      Additionally dynamically we assume:
       * no encryption or CCMP/GCMP, TKIP/WEP/other not allowed
       * station must be authorized
       * 4-addr format not enabled
      Some data needed for the RX path is cached in a new per-station
      "fast_rx" structure, so that we only need to look at this and
      the packet, no other memory when processing packets on the fast
      RX path.
      After doing the above per-packet checks, the data path collapses
      down to a pretty simple conversion function taking advantage of
      the data cached in the small fast_rx struct.
      This should speed up the RX processing, and will make it easier
      to reason about parallelizing RX (for which statistics will need
      to be per-CPU still.)

      mac80211: fix last RX rate data consistency · 4f6b1b3d
      Johannes Berg authored
      When storing the last_rate_* values in the RX code, there's nothing
      to guarantee consistency, so a concurrent reader could see, e.g.
      last_rate_idx on the new value, but last_rate_flag still on the old,
      getting completely bogus values in the end.
      To fix this, I lifted the sta_stats_encode_rate() function from my
      old rate statistics code, which encodes the entire rate data into a
      single 16-bit value, avoiding the consistency issue.
