config CFG80211
tristate "Improved wireless configuration API"
config NL80211
bool "nl80211 new netlink interface support"
depends on CFG80211
default y
This option turns on the new netlink interface
(nl80211) support in cfg80211.
If =n, drivers using mac80211 will be configured via
wireless extension support provided by that subsystem.
If unsure, say Y.
bool "Wireless extensions"
default n
This option enables the legacy wireless extensions
(wireless network interface configuration via ioctls.)
Wireless extensions will be replaced by cfg80211 and
will be required only by legacy drivers that implement
wireless extension handlers. This option does not
affect the wireless-extension backward compatibility
code in cfg80211.
Say N (if you can) unless you know you need wireless
extensions for external modules.
