The mesh interface can optimize the flooding of multicast packets based on
the content of the global translation tables. To disable this behavior and
use the broadcast-like flooding of the packets, forceflood has to be
enabled.

The BATADV_CMD_SET_MESH/BATADV_CMD_GET_MESH commands allow to set/get the
configuration of this feature using the
BATADV_ATTR_MULTICAST_FORCEFLOOD_ENABLED attribute. Setting the u8 to zero
will disable this feature (allowing multicast optimizations) and setting it
to something else is enabling this feature (forcing simple flooding).
