About cfg80211

cfg80211 is the new Linux wireless configuration API. cfg80211 will replace Wireless-Extensions. You can later use [:en/developers/nl80211:nl80211] or configfs to configure a device. Note that we are not going to add any new features to Wireless Extensions, we'll only fix bugs for it. If you don't like what you see with Wireless-Extensions then help us advance cfg80211.
