 +===== mac80211 issues =====
 +
 +This page lists the issues blocking zd1211rw moving to the mac80211 stack. Some of these may already be resolved, they just need to be checked. ​
 +
 +
 +==== TX disabling ====
 +
 +In the softmac driver, we temporarily disable TX while updating preamble mode and basic rates. This is not possible to do in mac80211 at the moment. ​
 +
 +
 +==== Basic rates handling ====
 +
 +In the softmac driver, we program the basic rates for RTS/CTS based on the association info. Need a similar system in mac80211. ​
 +
 +
 +==== Detailed error statistics ====
 +
 +Ulrich has greatly improved the zd1211rw 802.11 error statistics. This code needs moving over to the mac80211 driver after figuring out how mac80211 does this. 
 +  * [[http://​dsd.object4.net/​git/?​p=zd1211.git;​a=commitdiff;​h=2c1784a975f39b49037358b061d4f94ed9ffcac2|Detailed error statistics]] ​
 +
 +
 +==== Testing on ARM and SPARC64 ====
 +
 +We have happy ARM and SPARC64 users. To my knowledge, mac80211 has not been tested there. ​
 +    * However, we do test on powerpc and x86 so there'​s unlikely to be problems. Also, who's going to test mac80211 without a driver? IMHO this is a requirement that can't be solved. -- [[JohannesBerg|JohannesBerg]]  ​
