Please hold all questions until I am done with this email.  Thank you.

We are pleased to announce the availability of a new driver for the 
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection adapter.  This new driver 
uses the new d80211 subsystem previously only available as part of the 
wireless-dev tree.

You can find the new driver, and additional information about it, here:

   http://intellinuxwireless.org/iwlwifi.

Within the new driver package are sources which we plan to submit for 
kernel inclusion as well as scripts and patches which create a version 
of the driver which can be loaded into kernels based on 2.6.18 and newer 
(provided you have installed the d80211 subsystem as well)  The README 
document can walk you through pretty quickly.

Since a lot of our users are not able to move to the latest versions of 
the Linux kernel, we have put together a d80211 package allowing the 
installation of the d80211 subsystem into an existing kernel image 
without the need to migrate to wireless-dev, or upgrade to a newer 
kernel at all (assuming you are using 2.6.18 or newer).

You can find that package at:

   http://intellinuxwireless.org/d80211

Ok.  Now... any questions?

Thanks,
James / Intel Corporation

The iwlwifi driver for the 3945 does not require the user space daemon, 
but does require a new microcode image.

Over the past year we were able to make the necessary changes to the 
microcode used with the 3945 such that we were able to remove the 
regulatory daemon.

Updated and tested 'git clone' and its working now (I use cg-clone)

I'll look into it.  Does it work if you explicitly set KSRC to point to 
your kernel sources?

$ make KSRC=/lib/modules/2.6.20/source

?

Yes.  Does this require a closed user-space helper like the other
3945ABG driver, or is it completely open (maybe excepting firmware)?

I cannot get it through git:

$ git-clone http://intellinuxwireless.org/repos/iwlwifi.git
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/proski/src/iwlwifi/.git/
Cannot get remote repository information.
Perhaps git-update-server-info needs to be run there?

Perhaps git is right?  There is no info/refs there.

I appreciate that you are doing this.  But it doesn't compile against
kernels compiled outside the tree:

grep: /lib/modules/2.6.20/build//include/linux/netdevice.h: No such file
or directory

Apparently it should be looking into /lib/modules/2.6.20/source as well.
That was a problem with the official ipw3945 drivers as well.

'make' builds a set of sources compatible with the running kernel (or 
the one pointed to via KSRC=).

'make patch_kernel' will then install the sources into your kernel tree. 
  You then build d80211 as part of your main kernel (either as a module 
or static)  The changes 'patch_kernel' makes do not require a full 
kernel rebuild (you can just build the 80211 modules).

We'll want to add the ability to build as out-of-tree .ko's (similar to 
what iwlwifi does) but I wanted to get the project announced.

Now that you point it out, I hadn't tried using KSRC w/ the iwlwifi 
build, just d80211.  I'll have to fix that :)

James

yes
first great wor finally no more  daemon ;)
now my question:
does this driver still supports wext? or  is it not  useable by
networkmanager?

That works.  At least it doesn't report errors.  But it doesn't create a
single object file.  Anyway, I'm cheating here - my kernel does include
d80211 support.

"build" is still hardcoded in iwlwifi's Makefile.  It's interesting that
D80211_INC is defined twice in Makefile.  That must be wrong.

I'm going to try everything on a more traditional build in the tree and
without d80211.  And then I'll try to break some assumptions.

I am impressed: I had 2.6.20 running with ipw3945 + wpa_supplicant. I
installed the d80211 system and the new driver, rebooted, and you won't

Wow, great news on this rainy saturday! ;-)

The driver works perfectly, I'm writing this mail via wireless link. However 
there are two things to note:

The driver generates two network devices. The second one is for promicious 
mode? Is there any chance to disable the interface? ifrename renamed the 
wrong one to wlan0 and I had to tell my system to use eth1 for the wireless 
connection.

Second problem is that I can't unload the module. I get the message "FATAL: 
Module iwlwifi is in use." even if both interfaces are down.

Oh, I forgot one note: "make patch_kernel" is terribly broken. Any chance to 
get this fixed soon?

Very cool!  Is it likely that d80211 and iwlwifi will be pushed into
mainline in time for 2.6.21?

Hmmm...I think we need to spend a cycle or so in -mm.  2.6.22 seems
more likely for mainline.

I think we should take this as a goal.  Last time I checked, d80211 wasn't in
-mm.  Perhaps it should go there.  And by the way, the latest changes from
netdev->class_dev to netdev->dev break d80211.  Perhaps we should rebase
wireless-dev immediately after 2.6.21-rc1, fix all compile issues and submit
the patch to -mm.

And iwlwifi is surprisingly good for a just announced driver.  It worked for me
from the first attempt, and that's the first d80211 driver to do so.  In my
opinion, it should go to wireless-dev as soon as possible so it can go to -mm
toghether with other drivers.  A couple of wrinkles in the standalone build
system are irrelevant to the kernel interation.

I think we should take this as a goal.  Last time I checked, d80211 wasn't in
-mm.  Perhaps it should go there.  And by the way, the latest changes from
netdev->class_dev to netdev->dev break d80211.  Perhaps we should rebase
wireless-dev immediately after 2.6.21-rc1, fix all compile issues and submit
the patch to -mm.

And iwlwifi is surprisingly good for a just announced driver.  It worked for me
from the first attempt, and that's the first d80211 driver to do so.  In my
opinion, it should go to wireless-dev as soon as possible so it can go to -mm
toghether with other drivers.  A couple of wrinkles in the standalone build
system are irrelevant to the kernel interation.

I think one of the devices is wmaster0.  It's better that you just
ignore it.  The effort is already underway to make that interface
hidden.

In the meantime, you can use the "arp" condition in /etc/iftab.
Ethernet is 1 (that includes the original wlan0), IEEE 802.11 is 801
(that's the master devices and devices in monitor mode).  For example:

wifi* arp 801
eth* arp 1

I cannot reproduce this problem.  Please see the output of "lsmod" and
the kernel log for possible oopses.

I decided to drop the iftab thing and replace it with udev rules. The 
following rules do the expected renaming:

KERNEL=="eth*", SYSFS{address}=="00:13:77:04:a7:77", NAME="eth0"
KERNEL=="eth*", SYSFS{address}=="00:00:f0:41:20:07:e8:49", SYSFS{type}=="24", 
NAME="fw0"
KERNEL=="eth*", SYSFS{address}=="00:13:02:0f:56:a2", SYSFS{type}=="1", 
NAME="wlan0"

lsmod shows a use count of 4294967295 (2^32 - 1), no oopses or the like. This 
is reproducable all the time.

The second one is the so-called "master" interface which is used for QoS
stuff. We're working on hiding it until a better solution for QoS
evolves (which has been a plan for a while.)

I've put up a new version of iwlwifi (0.0.6) with significant changes to 
the patch_kernel scripts as well as including Pavel's patch to KSRC.

I performed some build testing with 2.6.18 and wireless-dev @ commit 
f66e5aaa88c1c0a7ee6c6427d6535ed8afd35427 (Jan 8).

Let me know if it is still breaking.

Thanks,
James

Hello!

Although I cannot reproduce the problem (I'm on current wireless-dev),
here's my interpretation.

The iwlwifi driver includes both a driver and a rate control algorithm.
It passes THIS_MODULE (i.e. a handle to itself) to the generic rate
control code, which locks the caller i.e. iwlwifi.  Therefore, iwlwifi
has locked itself in memory.

To counteract that, the driver "puts" the module, i.e. decreases its use
count after the rate control is registered.  Conversely, the module
"gets" itself when the rate control is unregistered.

One thing that is clearly wrong is that try_module_get() comes after
ieee80211_rate_control_unregister(), not before.  This means that the
use count would go negative between those calls.  If the kernel starts
checking for this, the driver is in trouble.

Further, why do we need this self-locking/unlocking trick?  The driver
can just set priv->rate_control.module to NULL and prevent self-locking.

It would only make sense to put THIS_MODULE there is the rate control
were implemented as a separate module, which it probably a good idea in
the long term.

But a simple fix would be just to get rid of all references to
THIS_MODULE and let the kernel do the right thing.

Most likely, your kernel doesn't use the priv->rate_control.module field
to lock the module, so it would help in your case.

This patch solves the problem. The module's use count is zero and I can unload 
and load the module.
However I have processes in status D when restarting the device. Is it 
possible that some functions (i.e. escape_essid()) from old and new ieee80211 
stack conflict? I will recompile my kernel without the old stack and see if 
anything changes.

Hmm, it compiled once, but after I removed the tree and used a clean one I can 
not reproduce it:

LD      drivers/net/wireless/built-in.o
ld: drivers/net/wireless/d80211/built-in.o: No such file: No such file or

make[3]: *** [drivers/net/wireless/built-in.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [drivers/net/wireless] Error 2
make[1]: *** [drivers/net] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2

So it is still broken.

Tried this is on a patched 2.6.20 kernel with ipw3945 device and it always 
puts the card in 802.11a mode instead of 802.11bg mode.

Ideas?

Before running  "iwconfig wlan0 channel 8",  the card is set to
802.11a mode. iwconfig shows rate at 54Mb/s. But after setting the
channel, it sets to 802.11b mode, and I can't find a way to change
from 11Mb/s to 54MB/s.

"iwlist eth0 rate" only show up to 11Mb/s.

So, my problem is the card is always in 802.11b mode.

Thanks,
Jeff.

So I guess there is a common problem with a/bg modes?

Yes... is there merged .git tree somewhere? I downloaded iwl git tree,
but it did not contain d80211 stack. I'm now downloading wireless-dev
git tree...

I would expect Intel to post patches some time soon to get into
wireless-dev.

Regardless of what iwconfig reports as the mode or rate, you should be=20

valid rate.  Once configured and associated, iwconfig should provide=20

that you specify everything for the association, eg:

    iwconfig wlan0 channel 8 essid MyAP ap 00:13:f0:0d:ca:fe

d80211 will only attempt to associate once -- if it fails, then you nee=
d=20
to currently "de-configure" the device and reconfigure it back to what=20
you want to associate to.  I do that here by chaging the AP BSSID to=20

Some of the patches contained in the d80211-1.0.1 'pending/' directory 
have already been submitted to netdev in the past.  The rest will be 
submitted soon (I would have liked them to have been submitted a few 
weeks back, but that slipped through my task list)

The d80211 packages I've pushed to date haven't done a very good job of 
accounting regarding the pending/ directory.  Those were the patches our 
team here had been working with internally, and I wanted to get them out 
to the users ASAP.  I'm working to get better descriptions added to the 
headers of those patches, as well as adding a status line indicating 
when the patches were submitted to the mailing lists for discussion.

The goal is to only include patches in the d80211 tarballs which have 
been submitted for eventual in-tree inclusion.

The LED code in iwlwifi isn't hooked up to the D80211 LED code yet.  If 
you'd file a bug at http://bughost.org regarding the LEDs being broken 
(if you haven't already) I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

There isn't a singular merged iwlwifi + d80211 package tree outside of 
wireless-dev, and iwlwifi isn't there yet (I'm cleaning out some dead 
and duplicated code before we submit)

I've put up http://intellinuxwireless.org/repos/?p=d80211.git so you can 
pull the d80211 package via git (vs. downloading the tarball).  Running 
'make patch_kernel' will then install the d80211 subsystem containing 
patches not yet in wireless-dev into your kernel sources (specified via 
KSRC=)

Ok, I was looking for merged tree. JBenc told me it should be
available "soon", so I guess I'll wait.

Hi!

> BUilding with sparse shows lots of warnings.

You seem to be the lucky one, able to actually compile the
beast. Could you run diff against vanilla and post it somewhere?

"Normal" installation procedure has too many steps in my eyes, and
combined git tree is not available, so I was waiting for merge at
least into -wirelessdev tree.

"make patch_kernel" would patch the kernel from wireless-dev.git.  If
the Linux source tree is not configured, just run "make distclean" after
that (or apply my patch from the previous post in the ipw3945-devel
list).

You can use StGIT for convert the changes made by "make patch_kernel" to
a local patch so that updating from the upstream git repository is still
possible with "stg pull".

No need to wait for anything.
