netdev-GNRC glue code interface More...

Detailed Description

This interface is supposed to provide common adaption code between the low-level network device interface "netdev" and the GNRC network stack.

GNRC sends around "gnrc_pktsnip_t" structures, but netdev can only handle "struct iovec" structures when sending, or a flat buffer when receiving.

The purpose of gnrc_netdev is to bring these two interfaces together.
