SubjectRe: [PATCH] ieee802154: add rx LQI from userspace

Hello Clement.

Finally coming to review the patch. Sorry for the delay.

I can see that it makes the application life a lot easier to have data
send out and LQI value synced up by using the socket approach instead of
dealing with socket and ioctl's. I am good with this patch in general.

So you have some public code that uses this approach? I would be
interesting in the userspace part of yours. A demo would be fine. If the
network handling part of your application is public anyway that would be
even better. :-)

As Alex mentioned we have some socket examples in the wpa-tools package
to give people a head start when wanting to use the subsystem. Having
such a simple example for the LQI feature would really give you bonus
points. :-)

I am wondering a bit about the LQI you get back here. Maybe Alex can
also shed some lights on it. The LQI value stored here is always from
the last frame send (to any peer)? Or is it the last frame send to this
specific peer?

I have not put much thoughts into the LQI thing so far.Just thinking we
need to be careful what we are providing to not let userspace make bad
decisions (e.g. wrong routing changes due to link values given for a
different peer connection).

Review wise I am happy with the patch. I will give it a test.
