Subject: [PATCH 3/3] ath9k: add noise floor override option
Date: Thu, 16 Mar 2017 16:13:37 +0100
Message-ID: <20170316151337.24163-4-sw@simonwunderlich.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170316151337.24163-1-sw@simonwunderlich.de>

Introduce a debugfs option to manually override the noise floor,
ignoring the automatically tuned noise floor of the driver/hw.

In my tests with a AR9580 based module and a tx99 5 MHz interferer,
I could tune the noisefloor to -95 dBm or above to allow communication
again. The automatic noise floor calibration sometimes could adapt to
the situation as well, but not reliably and permanently.

I would consider this "feature" experimental and interesting for people
debugging the noise floor calibration or other effects of the hardware.
