[PATCH v2] mac80211: add command to get current rssi

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Get current rssi (in dBm) from the driver/FW.

Instead of reporting the signal received in the last
rx packet, which might be inaccurate if rx traffic is
low and beacon filtering is enabled, get the singal
from the driver/FW.

Signed-off-by: Victor Goldenshtein <victorg@xxxxxx>

v2:
   updated function documentation.
   added *sta argument to the drv_get_rssi().
   added return value to the drv_get_rssi().
