Hello David,

here you have our first patchset intended for net-next/linux-3.10.

These patches include a new big component implementing a first version of
Network Coding for mesh networks. This code is the result of Martin Hundebøll
and Jeppe Ledet-Pedersen's Master Thesis[1]. The target of Network Coding is to
increase throughput by fusing multiple packets in one wifi transmission (thus
saving airtime).
This new component also introduced a new Kbuild option which can be used to
decide whether to include this feature or not. However, a switch to dynamically
turn off the behaviour at runtime has been provided too. DebugFS has also been
extended with some knobs to be used in case of debugging only.

The rest is clean up work.

Please pull or let me know if there is any problem!

Thank you,
	Antonio

  batman-adv: network coding - receive coded packets and decode them (2013-03-13 22:53:51 +0100)

----------------------------------------------------------------
Included changes:
- introduction of the new Network Coding component. This new mechanism aims to
  increase throughput by fusing multiple packets in one transmission.
- minor cleanups
