Hello David,

this is a pull request intended for net-next/linux-3.17 (yeah..it's really
late).

Patches 1, 2 and 4 are really minor changes:
- kmalloc_array is substituted to kmalloc when possible (as suggested by
  checkpatch);
- net_ratelimited() is now used properly and the "suppressed" message is not
  printed anymore if not needed;
- the internal version number has been increased to reflect our current version.

Patch 3 instead is introducing a change in the metric computation function
by changing the penalty applied at each mesh hop from 15/255 (~6%) to
30/255 (~11%). This change is introduced by Simon Wunderlich after having
observed a performance improvement in several networks when using the new value.


Please pull or let me know of any problem!

Thanks a lot,
	Antonio
