Mahesh Palivela - June 22, 2012, 6:35 a.m.
11ac VHT changes to include VHT IEs in beacons and probe resp.
Updated with Jouni's review comments.
Apart from existing file changes in hostap tree, a new file ieee802_11_vht.c is created and placed in src/ap path.
File location is src/ap/ieee802_11_vht.c
