It has: wol, wol_ucast, wol_mcast, wol_magic Enable Wake On Lan (WOL) support, if available. WOL is a facil- ity whereby a machine in a low power state may be woken in response to a received packet. There are three types of packets that may wake a system: ucast (directed solely to the machine's mac address), mcast (directed to a broadcast or multicast address), or magic (unicast or multicast frames with a ``magic contents''). Not all devices support WOL, those that do indicate the mechanisms they support in their capabilities. wol is a syn- onym for enabling all available WOL mechanisms. To disable WOL use -wol.
