Description

Fix multiple issues with the wireless information reported by i3status for
an interface:

  • Instead of hoping that the currently associated AP will show up as the first AP in the list of scan results, fetch the BSSID of the currently associated AP and use that to fetch station info for the AP. This provides more frequently updated signal strength information than scan results and reliably provides information when multiple APs are in range.
  • Do not treat the RSSI value as a raw signal value in dBm. Instead, use the same formula as ifconfig(8) to compute a signal value.
  • Do not report the beacon interval value as a signal quality level.
