[PATCH] Allow wpa_supplicant to use libnl-2.0

Thu Jul 2 11:02:57 EDT 2009


Introduce CONFIG_LIBNL20 .config parameter and propogate
that as a CFLAG in the Makefile.

Add forward-compatibility code to allow the existing code
to also use libnl-2.0.

 This patch applies to:
    git://w1.fi/srv/git/hostap-06.git
    fa4e296f542af01da135d997358d6d45a32dd59e

and was originally posted on the linux-wireless list.
 
Also, I suspect that this define:

    +#define nl_handle nl_sock

may need to be added to the hostapd side as well, but
I'm not using that and haven't investigated or tested that.
