> Add support for DLT IEEE802_11_RADIO to Bro. It appears this linktype adds a bunch of info from the WLAN radio in front of the actual ethernet header. Unfortunately, it appears to have variable length headers, to adding support to Bro is not trivial.
> Many (all?) wlan interface can create pcap captures with this DLT. E.g, one can use 
> * ``tcpdump -I ....``  or 
> * ``tcpdump -y IEEE802_11_RADIO``  (depending on OS and tcpdump version used)
> On my Mac OS ``tcpdump -I`` works.
