Add RoboSwitch driver interface for wpa_supplicant
Find attached the patch that creates a new driver: roboswitch. This driver adds support for wired authentication with a Broadcom RoboSwitch chipset. For example it is now possible to do wired authentication with a Linksys WRT54G router running OpenWRT. LIMITATIONS - At the moment the driver does not support the BCM5365 series (though adding it requires just some register tweaks). - The driver is also limited to Linux (this is a far more technical restriction). - In order to compile against a 2.4 series you need to edit include/linux/mii.h and change all references to "u16" in "__u16". I have submitted a patch upstream that will fix this in a future version of the 2.4 kernel. [These modifications (and more) are now included in the kernel source and can be found in versions 2.4.37-rc2 and up.] USAGE - Usage is similar to the wired driver. Choose the interfacename of the vlan that contains your desired authentication port on the router. This name must be formatted as <interface>.<vlan>, which is the default on all systems I know.
