parent[MAC80211]: implement cfg80211's change_interface hook (diff)
[MAC80211]: add sta_notify callback
This patch adds sta_notify callback and removes sta_table_notification which was not used by any driver. sta_notify() is essential for drivers that keeps notion of station internally and need to be notified about removal or addition of a station to the (I)BSS or assocation to an AP. This version adds interface id to the parameter list as suggested by Johannes Berg Signed-off-by: Tomas Winkler <tomas.winkler@intel.com> Acked-by: Johannes Berg <johannes@sipsolutions.net> Signed-off-by: John W.
