I briefly looked through these patches and discovered
that I have no clue how beacon updates work...
- PRE_TBTT irq
- call ieee80211_beacon_get() to get updated TIM for next beacon
- write updated beacon to hw in time before TBTT
Can someone confirm my understanding is correct?
If it is correct, how does it work on USB where we
don't get a PRE_TBTT irq?
And what would be the consequence of sending
a beacon with wrong TIM?
