These functions process received 802.11 frames.
function takes an mbuf chain m containing a complete
802.11 frame from the driver ifp and passes it to the
software 802.11 stack for input processing. The ni
argument specifies an instance of struct
ieee80211_node (which may be driver-specific) representing the node
from which the frame was received. The arguments rssi
and stamp are typically derived from on-card data
structures; they are used for recording the signal strength and time
received of the frame respectively.
function performs decapsulation of the 802.11 frame in the mbuf chain
m received by the device ifp,
taking the form of the 802.11 address fields into account; the structure of
802.11 addresses vary according to the intended source and destination of
the frame. It is typically called from within

ieee80211 series of functions first
appeared in NetBSD 1.5, and were later ported to
FreeBSD 4.6 and OpenBSD
