[PATCH] mac80211_hwsim: Register and bind to driver

Hello kernel team,

today I fixed mac80211_hwsim to get a proper "driver" attribute, so
that it works with NetworkManager. This will allow us to write
integration tests not only for wpa_supplicant and dhclient, but for
the whole NM stack. [1]

I sent the patch upstream this morning, and Johannes Berg applied it
to his tree:


If it is appropriate, it would be nice to include it into the raring
kernel. However, it's not necessary to break freeze rules or go
through extraordinary efforts, as we can also apply a workaround to NM
for the time being.

I filed a bug to track this: https://launchpad.net/bugs/1166250

Thanks for considering,
