This series makes libertas actually associate with APs after the
cfg80211 conversion.  There was a pretty big TODO where if cfg80211
didn't pass in the BSSID of the AP to associate with, then libertas
would fail because the firmware really, really, really wants a BSSID.
So lets do a scan to find that BSSID.  The other notable change is
a fix to make sure all supported rates are included in the firmware's
association request, lack of which caused some APs to deny the attempt.


Dan Williams (5):
  libertas: get the right # of scanned BSSes
  libertas: better scan response debugging
  libertas: better association request debugging
  libertas: fix association with some APs by using extended rates
  libertas: scan before assocation if no BSSID was given

Let's actually check the right field in the command response; and
if there aren't any reported BSSes, exit early with success.

Bring back the comment about FW v5 status codes from the pre-cfg80211
driver, and let through status codes that aren't remapped by the
firmware.

Some APs get pissy if you don't send the firmware the extended rates
in the association request's rates TLV.  Found this on a Linksys
WRT54G v2; it denies association with status code 18 unless you
add the extended rates too.  The old driver did this, but it got
lost in the cfg80211 conversion.

Fix this leftover TODO from the cfg80211 conversion by doing a scan
if cfg80211 didn't pass in the BSSID for us.  Since the scan code
uses so much of the cfg80211_scan_request structure to build up the
firmware command, we just fake one when the scan request is triggered
internally.  But we need to make sure that internal 'fake' cfg82011
scan request does get back to cfg82011 via cfg80211_scan_done().

I'm a bit tempted to say we could use the connect logic in cfg80211 to
provide this? cfg80211 _already_ provides this if the hardware wants
auth()/assoc() rather than connect() calls, so it seems fairly simple to
also (optionally) do it here?

I think you mean "does _not_ get back".

Some months ago I was thinking the same. I thought that the auth/assoc and 
connect driver APIs where quite unorthogonal. However, I did not understand 
all of cfg80211's state machinery to make the connect branch of the API also 
support a BSSID.

If that could be done this way, I'd prefer it over a libertas-internal hack.

Basically we'd need this to be controller from the driver:

do scan before connect
use connect() or auth()/assoc() to connect

That way ...

... some driver can say "no scan, use connect" (orinoco, e.g.)
... or "scan, use connect" (libertas)
... or "scan, use auth/assoc" (mac80211)

Yeah, I thought about that too.  Do you want me to work on that now
instead of letting this patch through?  I can revert the relevant bits
of this later if that's acceptable too.

Fix this leftover TODO from the cfg80211 conversion by doing a scan
if cfg80211 didn't pass in the BSSID for us.  Since the scan code
uses so much of the cfg80211_scan_request structure to build up the
firmware command, we just fake one when the scan request is triggered
internally.  But we need to make sure that internal 'fake' cfg82011
scan request does not get back to cfg82011 via cfg80211_scan_done().
