CONFIG_RTL8XXXU: RTL8723AU/RTL8188[CR]U/RTL819[12]CU (mac80211) support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_RTL8XXXU:

Help text

This is an alternative driver for various Realtek RTL8XXX parts written to utilize the Linux mac80211 stack. The driver is known to work with a number of RTL8723AU, RL8188CU, RTL8188RU, RTL8191CU, and RTL8192CU devices

This driver is under development and has a limited feature set. In particular it does not yet support 40MHz channels and power management. However it should have a smaller memory footprint than the vendor drivers and benefits from the in kernel mac80211 stack.

It can coexist with drivers from drivers/staging/rtl8723au, drivers/staging/rtl8192u, and drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi, but you will need to control which module you wish to load.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called r8xxxu. If unsure, say N.
