Hello David,

this is another batch intended for net-next/linux-3.13.

This pull request is a bit bigger than usual, but 6 patches are very small
(three of them are about email updates)..

Patch 1 is fixing a previous merge conflict resolution that went wrong
(I realised that only now while checking other patches..).
Patches from 2 to 4 that are updating our emails in all the proper files
(Documentation/, headers and MAINTAINERS).

Patches 5, 6 and 7 are bringing a big improvement to the TranslationTable
component: it is now able to group non-mesh clients based on the VLAN they
belong to. In this way a lot a new enhancements are now possible thanks to the
fact that each batman-adv behaviour can be applied on a per VLAN basis.

And, of course, in patches from 8 to 12 you have some of the enhancements I was
talking about:
- make the batman-Gateway selection VLAN dependent
- make DAT (Distributed ARP Table) group ARP entries on a VLAN basis (this
  allows DAT to work even when the admin decided to use the same IP subnet on
  different VLANs)
- make the AP-Isolation behaviour switchable on each VLAN independently
- export VLAN specific attributes via sysfs. Switches like the AP-Isolation are
  now exported once per VLAN (backward compatibility of the sysfs interface has
  been preserved)

Patches 13 and 14 are small code cleanups.
Patch 15 is a minor improvement in the TT locking mechanism.

Patches 16 and 17 are other enhancements to the TT component. Those allow a
node to parse a "non-mesh client announcement message" and accept only those
TT entries belonging to certain VLANs.

Patch 18 exploits this parse&accept mechanism to make the Bridge Loop Avoidance
component reject only TT entries connected to the VLAN where it is operating.
Previous to this change, BLA was rejecting all the entries coming from any other
Backbone node, regardless of the VLAN (for more details about how the Bridge
Loop Avoidance works please check [1]).


Please pull or let me know of any problem.

Thanks a lot,
	Antonio

Looks good, pulled, thanks a lot Antonio.

Please don't use empty subject lines in the future, lots of
sites block such emails and I see all of those bounces as
vger postmaster :-/

Ops, my bad. I won't do it again in the future!
Thanks a lot David.
