I think it might be useful in multi channel operation (one chip handling multiple virtual interfaces on different channels). RTS threshold is still set with NL80211_CMD_SET_WIPHY, and can be now executed for both hw and vif, so it's backward compatible (from userspace).As much as I like the idea of having per vif rts/cts settings, the rts/cts user space API is useless as long as these settings are bluntly ignored by certain rate control algorithms. I already had to explain to a dozen people who turned rts/cts off via this API does not really turn it off. Therefore, I suggest to remove the rts/cts API altogether, so that nobody falls into the trap of believing this does anything useful.
Oops, I totally missed IEEE80211_TX_RC_USE_RTS_CTS. Thanks for comment! BR, Lukasz -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-wireless" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
