Hi,

I'm generating a radio tap header with extended mask in order to
specify a multi rate retry chain. In the first mask i have 4 fields
each of them 8 bits long, so no padding problem.

In the second, third and forth mask I have only the rate and the retries
fields should I use padding between one mask and the next:

rate_1 (8)
retry_1 (8)
pad (8)
pad (8)
rate_2 (8)
retry_2 (8)
pad (8)
pad (8)

or insted:

rate_1 (8)
retry _1 (8)
rate_2 (8)
retry _2 (8)

thanks

What's with the "(8)"? Generally, anything in the data portion of
radiotap needs to be padded to the right position.

(8) was the field length. in the example above i;ve repoted
two different radiotap headers where i specify twice the rate
and the retries field.

of course i know that in this case i will have to put to it-present
bitmasks and i will have to set the bit 31 of the first bitmask to 1.

what i'm not sure is if i have to pad the first "block" to the word
boundary or not.

I still don't get it. If the field length is 8 bits (1 byte) you don't
need any alignment anyway.
