Subject: [PATCH 03/31] staging: wfx: ignore PS when STA/AP share same channel
Date: Fri, 10 Sep 2021 18:04:36 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210910160504.1794332-4-Jerome.Pouiller@silabs.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210910160504.1794332-1-Jerome.Pouiller@silabs.com>

From: Jérôme Pouiller <jerome.pouiller@silabs.com>

When multiple interface are in use. One is always AP while the other is
always station. When the two interface use the same channel, it makes no
sense to enabled Power Saving (PS) on the station. Indeed, because of
the AP, the device will be kept awake on this channel anyway.

In add, when multiple interface are in use, mac80211 does not update the
PS information and delegate to the driver responsibility to do the
right thing.

Thus, in the current code, when the user enable PS in this
configuration, the driver finally enable PS-Poll which is probably not
what the user expected.

This patch detect this case and applies a sane configuration in all
cases.
