I needed some input on how HostAP handles CFP. My understanding is that HostAP does not have the CF poll functionality built in. It uses the default value of 0 for length of the CFP. I am implementing the CFP handling (esp. the PC polling mode) for the hostAP. While I am working on it it will be great if someone can point out if the CF-Poll frames can actually be handled by the driver with on Prism2 in HostAP mode or these frames are handled by the firmware. From Prism2 documentation it looks like if I put the chipset in HostAP mode I should get all the Poll requests directed to the driver. Its with this in mind that I am going ahead with the implementation but it would be great to know in advance if Im wrong in my assumption.
Also, any inputs regarding my previous mail for CF-End processing (I am attaching the mail below) will be a great help.
