Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/1] linux-wireless: Added psk in struct cfg80211_connect_params
 needed for offloading 4way handshake to driver

Hi Gautam,

Good to see more upstream contributions, but it might be useful to have
a driver implementation as well in this series. Maybe we can take a shot
with brcmfmac for obvious reasons. Would you happen to have
wpa_supplicant changes as well?

I added some inline comments below.

Regards,
Arend

> For offloading 4 way handshake to driver, currently we don't have any member  of struct cfg80211_connect_params to pass PSK from supplicant to driver. I have added psk for the same and added rest of the code needed in nl80211.h and nl80211.c to parse and make it available to driver.

In the commit message you should not describe what you did, but what
problem you are trying to solve and/or what functional change the patch
provides.

Some indentation gone haywire here. I would remove '(u8 attribute)'. The
mention of 32-octet seems sufficient to me.
