struct_cfg80211_bss - BSS description
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
*hidden_beacon_bss; s32 signal; u16 beacon_interval; u16 capability; u8 bssid[ETH_ALEN]; u8 priv[
3. MEMBERS ▲
channel this BSS is on
the information elements (Note that there is no guarantee that these are well-formed!); this is a pointer to either the beacon_ies or proberesp_ies depending on whether Probe Response frame has been received. It is always non-NULL.
the information elements from the last Beacon frame (implementation note: if hidden_beacon_bss is set this struct doesnAqt own the beacon_ies, but theyAqre just pointers to the ones from the hidden_beacon_bss struct)
the information elements from the last Probe Response frame
in case this BSS struct represents a probe response from a BSS that hides the SSID in its beacon, this points to the BSS struct that holds the beacon data. beacon_ies is still valid, of course, and points to the same data as hidden_beacon_bss->beacon_ies in that case.
signal strength value (type depends on the wiphyAqs signal_type)
the beacon interval as from the frame
the capability field in host byte order
BSSID of the BSS
private area for driver use, has at least wiphy->bss_priv_size bytes
4. DESCRIPTION ▲
This structure describes a BSS (which may also be a mesh network) for use in scan results and similar.
