Description kelsey hudson 2005-12-23 19:41:57 UTC
Description of problem:

madwifi-ng allows the same wireless board to work in configurations of access
point, station, and ad-hoc, all at the same time with different settings. To
achieve this, madwifi created a master device wlan%d. From this master device
you must create pseudodevices (slaves). The following patch makes this process
easy by simply adding some config options and a (small) hack to allow devices
"not present" at boot time to still be configured.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This seems like it would be better solved in a madwifi support package (such as
one that contains wlanconfig) by using the support for alternate
ifup-$(DEVICETYPE) scripts directly.
