Hello David,

here you have another pull request intended for net-next/linux-3.14.

Patches from 1 to 8 implement an optimization for multi-interface setups.
It allows batman-adv nodes to take advantage of all the interfaces they
have in a smarter way than what the protocol was doing before. In
a few words this feature allows a single node to make routing decision by
using a sort of "network-wide knowledge". For more details please read [1].
Along with this feature you also have some specific debug facilities that
should make the netadmin life easier in case of troubles.

Patch 11 is adding some compile time checks against the size of the
packets we send over the wire. This should ensure us that no future member
reordering messes up with the padding of those structures.

The remaining patches are minor changes and cleanups. In particular:
- drop the CRC16 dependency from Kbuild
- remove "returns" at the end of void functions
- update release version
- update copyright years to 2014
- add missing sysfs attributes in batman-adv.txt document


Please pull or let me know of any problem!

Thanks a lot,
	Antonio
