Query on WMM AC parameters configuration using netlink

Hi All

I am working on changing the TXQ queue parameters dynamically using
netlink sockets.

As of now, I was able to change the TXQ parameters used by AP(tx_queue
parameters in hostap.conf) by setting the structure

I tested this on mininet-wifi and I able to see below debug output.

Feb 21 11:57:01 wifi-VirtualBox kernel: [38320.963179] ieee80211
mn00s02: mac80211_hwsim_conf_tx (queue=0 txop=0 cw_min=7 cw_max=15
Feb 21 11:57:01 wifi-VirtualBox kernel: [38320.963184] ieee80211
mn00s02: mac80211_hwsim_bss_info_changed(changed=0x2000

Now, I want to change the wmm_ac parameters as well, but couldn't get
the exact netlink parameter to set.

Could someone point me the nl80211 parameter used to set these
parameters in AP, so that AP can advertise these values to stations in
their IE?

Best Regards
