Subject: [PATCH] wireless: fixup genregdb.awk for remove of antenna gain from wireless-regd

From: "Luis R. Rodriguez" <mcgrof@...e.com>

Since "wireless-regdb: remove antenna gain" was merged in the
wireless-regdb tree, the awk script parser has been incompatible
with the 'official' regulatory database.  This fixes that up.
Without this change the max EIRP is set to 0 making 802.11 devices
useless.

The fragile nature of the awk parser must be replaced, but ideas
over how to do that in the most scalable way are being reviewed.
In the meantime update the documentation for CFG80211_INTERNAL_REGDB
so folks are aware of expectations for now.

!!! Note !!!

This means older kernels that upgrade wireless-regdb and use
CFG80211_INTERNAL_REGDB are bust too and they should then merge
the latest updates to the awk script if they want to synch the
wireless-regdb files with the kernel builds. The affected Linux
distributions would be the users of CFG80211_INTERNAL_REGDB which
should consists of OpenWrt which is reported to have this fixed
already and mobile platforms.

We are looking at a way to not have to deal with parsers all together
at build time, for that discussion see:
