This series has the following patches:

  drivers: update driver.h to add signal quality elements to
signal_change structure
  driver_nl80211: Add new survey retrieval function to nl80211 driver,
and add txrate to station
  events: Add new channel condition parameters to bgscan signal change
event handling
  bgscan: Update all bgscan modules to accept new txrate and noise parameters

It updates nl80211 to pass up more information about the channel's
condition to wpa_supplicant, which in turns passes this information
down to the background scan modules.  Modules can potentially get a
richer feel for the channel condition and make better choices about
scan/no-scan and roam/no-roam.
