3. CONSTANTS

WIPHY_FLAG_CUSTOM_REGULATORY
    tells us the driver for this device has its own custom regulatory domain and cannot identify the ISO / IEC 3166 alpha2 it belongs to. When this is enabled we will disregard the first regulatory hint (when the initiator is REGDOM_SET_BY_CORE).

WIPHY_FLAG_STRICT_REGULATORY
    tells us the driver for this device will ignore regulatory domain settings until it gets its own regulatory domain via its regulatory_hint unless the regulatory hint is from a country IE. After its gets its own regulatory domain it will only allow further regulatory domain settings to further enhance compliance. For example if channel 13 and 14 are disabled by this regulatory domain no user regulatory domain can enable these channels at a later time. This can be used for devices which do not have calibration information guaranteed for frequencies or settings outside of its regulatory domain. If used in combination with WIPHY_FLAG_CUSTOM_REGULATORY the inspected country IE power settings will be followed.

WIPHY_FLAG_DISABLE_BEACON_HINTS
    enable this if your driver needs to ensure that passive scan flags and beaconing flags may not be lifted by cfg80211 due to regulatory beacon hints. For more information on beacon hints read the documenation for regulatory_hint_found_beacon

WIPHY_FLAG_NETNS_OK
    if not set, do not allow changing the netns of this wiphy at all

WIPHY_FLAG_PS_ON_BY_DEFAULT
    if set to true, powersave will be enabled by default -- this flag will be set depending on the kernelAqs default on wiphy_new, but can be changed by the driver if it has a good reason to override the default

WIPHY_FLAG_4ADDR_AP
    supports 4addr mode even on AP (with a single station on a VLAN interface)

WIPHY_FLAG_4ADDR_STATION
    supports 4addr mode even as a station

WIPHY_FLAG_CONTROL_PORT_PROTOCOL
    This device supports setting the control port protocol ethertype. The device also honours the control_port_no_encrypt flag.

WIPHY_FLAG_IBSS_RSN
    The device supports IBSS RSN.

WIPHY_FLAG_MESH_AUTH
    The device supports mesh authentication by routing auth frames to userspace. See NL80211_MESH_SETUP_USERSPACE_AUTH.

WIPHY_FLAG_SUPPORTS_SCHED_SCAN
    The device supports scheduled scans.

WIPHY_FLAG_SUPPORTS_FW_ROAM
    The device supports roaming feature in the firmware.

WIPHY_FLAG_AP_UAPSD
    The device supports uapsd on AP.

WIPHY_FLAG_SUPPORTS_TDLS
    The device supports TDLS (802.11z) operation.

WIPHY_FLAG_TDLS_EXTERNAL_SETUP
    The device does not handle TDLS (802.11z) link setup/discovery operations internally. Setup, discovery and teardown packets should be sent through the NL80211_CMD_TDLS_MGMT command. When this flag is not set, NL80211_CMD_TDLS_OPER should be used for asking the driver/firmware to perform a TDLS operation.

WIPHY_FLAG_HAVE_AP_SME
    device integrates AP SME

WIPHY_FLAG_REPORTS_OBSS
    the device will report beacons from other BSSes when there are virtual interfaces in AP mode by calling cfg80211_report_obss_beacon.

WIPHY_FLAG_AP_PROBE_RESP_OFFLOAD
    When operating as an AP, the device responds to probe-requests in hardware.

WIPHY_FLAG_OFFCHAN_TX
    Device supports direct off-channel TX.

WIPHY_FLAG_HAS_REMAIN_ON_CHANNEL
    Device supports remain-on-channel call.
