[RFC 1/3] cfg80211: add CONFIG_CFG80211_EXPERT

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

From: "Luis R. Rodriguez" <mcgrof@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

This adds CONFIG_CFG80211_EXPERT which can be used for
non-standard settings that are typically used for device
certification testing or research purposes. We'd use
CONFIG_EXPERT alone but it seems that most standard Linux
distributions are enabling CONFIG_EXPERT already. This
allows us to define wireless specific kernel features
under a flag that is intended by design to be disabled by
standard Linux distributions.
