ath rate control algorithms needed for dadwifi

Reported by: dwhedon Assigned to:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: dadwifi Version:
Keywords: Cc:
Patch is attached: 0 Pending:


dadwifi currently uses the simple rate control algorithm provided by the d80211 stack. MadWifi provides three rate control algorithms, any of which which may yield better performance. This task involves deciding which (if any?) rate control algorithms should be ported, and then porting them.

"Sample" is the only one that depends on ath_hal. Besides, it's twice as long as the other two. So the obvious choice would be the "amrr" and "onoe". Please use the trunk MadWifi version as the starting point. The rate control algorithms now register in a way similar to "simple" instead of exporting certain symbols.
