Commit Message

Loic Poulain Dec. 8, 2017, 9:35 a.m.
Current hw_scan implementation does not trigger offloaded
hardware scan and seems to only put the device in a kind of
listening mode (beacon/probe-response) for software scan.
Since no probe request are generated by the software, current
scanning method is similar to a passive scan.

This patch introduces support for 'true' hardware offloaded scan.
Hardware scan is configured and started via the start-scan-offload
firmware message. Once scan has been completed a scan indicator
message is received from firmware.

Moreover, this patch includes support for directed probe-request,
allowing connection with hidden APs. It also fixes scan issues with
band-steering AP which are not 'visible' with passive scan (due to
hidden ssid in beacons).

Let's keep the 'legacy' scanning method in case scan-offload is not
supported.

I'm puzzled to why I didn't see this when I dumped the control channel
that lead up to the initial hw_scan patch. But this looks good and with
a related locking issue fixed this seems to work well.

Grabbing this mutex with DEBUG_ATOMIC_SLEEP causes issues, but that's
because the locking in ind_smd_work() is to excessive. Will reply with a
fix for this.

Oops you're right, thanks for the patch.
