Hi Jouni Malinen,
Thanks for comments.
As you know, implementing ieee80211ah fully usable would be a very long
journey, and reviewing the patch would be a big task.
For example, it should support operation at a frequency in KHz and a
bandwidth of less than 20M. And since channel index and frequency matching
are different by region, it is necessary to implement
"frequency<->channel index converting" for each region.
So, before doing big task, I want to confirm that you are interested in
adding the ieee80211ah feature to hostap.
So, in this patch, I would like you to review the definition of hw mode
And errors that occur when using ah mode.
