Hello David,

this should be our last batch of patches intended for net-next/linux-3.8.
In this patchset we have patches 7,8/10 by Sven Eckelmann which improve the crc
computation on broadcast packets (in the Bridge Loop Avoidance component) by
using crc32c and by avoiding the entire linearisation of the skb! Then, patch
4/10 introduces a new debugfs file which exports the compatibility version so
that users having different batman-adv releases can understand whether they can
or cannot communicate.
Patch 10/10 removes the packed attribute for the unicast message type and adds
"#pragma pack(2)" (again, this is just part of our intermediate changes which do
not break compatibility. The real restructure will come later..).

The others are cleanups or small code refactoring.

Let me know if there is any problem!

Thank you,
