3. MEMBERS

channel
    channel this BSS is on

ies
    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.

beacon_ies
    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)

proberesp_ies
    the information elements from the last Probe Response frame

hidden_beacon_bss
    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
    signal strength value (type depends on the wiphyAqs signal_type)

beacon_interval
    the beacon interval as from the frame

capability
    the capability field in host byte order

bssid[ETH_ALEN]
    BSSID of the BSS

priv[0]
    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.
