Subject: [PATCH] mac80211: don't warn about CW params when not using them
Date: Wed, 17 Jul 2019 18:57:12 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

ieee80211_set_wmm_default() normally sets up the initial CW min/max for
each queue, except that it skips doing this if the driver doesn't
support ->conf_tx. We still end up calling drv_conf_tx() in some cases
(e.g., ieee80211_reconfig()), which also still won't do anything
useful...except it complains here about the invalid CW parameters.

Let's just skip the WARN if we weren't going to do anything useful with
the parameters.

Signed-off-by: Brian Norris <>
Noticed because rtw88 does not currently implement .conf_tx()

I think there are several ways to slice this one. I picked one fix,
which may not be the best one.
