Patch: allow modification of queue length via ifconfig

Reported by: mrenzmann Assigned to: mrenzmann (accepted)
Priority: minor Milestone: version 1.0.0 - first stable release
Component: madwifi: driver Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:
Patch is attached: 1 Pending:


This patch was submitted by Christian via madwifi-devel (see here):

I have modified one passage in the madwifi sourcecode, now it is possible to reduce the length of the transmit queue with

ifconfig <device> txqueuelen X

It is helpful for user programs which want to detect when the transmit queue is full. This can happen when data is sent at a higher rate than the device is able to deliver it - either because of retransmissions or because of a reduced tx bitrate.

We are using this for wireless QOS experiments at our university working group, but because the change is pretty tiny and adds functionality, it would be really nice to have it included in the main CVS.
