Subject: [PATCH 1/3] ath9k: Support channels in licensed bands
Date: Thu, 16 Mar 2017 16:13:35 +0100
Message-ID: <20170316151337.24163-2-sw@simonwunderlich.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170316151337.24163-1-sw@simonwunderlich.de>

From: Ben Greear <greearb@candelatech.com>

Many chips support channels in licensed bands. Add support for those,
along with a corresponding kernel config option to disable them by
default. Note that these channels are not selectable even if the
option has been compiled unless the user modifies the regulatory
database to explicitly enable the corresponding channels.

NOTE:  These channels must not be used in most regulatory
domains unless you have a license from the FCC or similar!

[Hide this support behind a Kconfig option]
Signed-off-by: Julian Calaby <julian.calaby@gmail.com>
[only use the 20 mhz channels, add 5 ghz, change to 4.9ghz to licensed bands]
