As my ongoing saga with data collection using this driver continues,
I've found the hostap_dump_rx_header function in the hostap driver
source. Unless I am mistaken, this function will take a given frame
and call the printk function to output the RX status, the silence
measurement, the signal measurement, the rate of transmission for the
frame, some "rxflow" variable, and another "jiffies" variable.

So, my question is, where does printk output to? When is this function
enabled? Can I enable it for all packets? What do rxflow and jiffies
mean? What units are the silence and signal measurements given in?

Is it possible for me to use this function to gather the data I want?
