4 Subject: [PATCH] {nl,mac}80211: allow 4addr AP operation on crypto controlled
5 devices
6
7 As per the current design, for sw crypto controlled devices, it is
8 the device which has to advertise the support for AP/VLAN iftype
9 based on it's capability to tranmsit packets encrypted in software
10 (In VLAN functionality, group traffic generated for a specific
11 VLAN group is always encrypted in software). Commit db3bdcb9c3ff
12 ("mac80211: allow AP_VLAN operation on crypto controlled devices")
13 has introduced this change.
14
15 Since 4addr AP operation also uses AP/VLAN iftype, this conditional
16 way of advertising AP/VLAN support has broken 4addr AP mode operation on
17 crypto controlled devices which do not support VLAN functionality.
18
19 For example:
20 In the case of ath10k driver, not all firmwares have support for VLAN
21 functionality but all can support 4addr AP operation. Because AP/VLAN
22 support is not advertised for these devices, 4addr AP operations are
23 also blocked.
24
25 Fix this by allowing 4addr opertion on devices which do not advertise
26 AP/VLAN iftype but which can support 4addr operation (the desicion is
27 taken based on the wiphy flag WIPHY_FLAG_4ADDR_AP).
28
29 Fixes: Commit db3bdcb9c3ff ("mac80211: allow AP_VLAN operation on
30 crypto controlled devices")
