Hi David,

this is our first batch intended for net-next.

Here you have all those non-critical fixes/changes that we couldn't
merge into the net tree as it was already too late in the release

This is a summary of what each patch does:

- patch 1 by Sven Eckelmann is changing the way the GW metric is
computed so that the resulting operation does not make use of
divisions and also does not lead to any data type promotion. This is
a requirement for patch 2;
- patch 2 by Ruben Wisniewski is changing the type of the variable used
in the same GW metric computation as patch 1 to uint64_t so that potential
integer overflows are prevented. Thanks to Sven's patch above no 64bit
division will be involved;
- patches 3, 4, 5 and 6 by Linus Lüssing are converting plain bitwise
operations on capability bits to set/clear/test_bit() in order to ensure
their atomicity and prevent potential race conditions;
- patch 7, also by Linus, is making the multicast TVLV parsing routine
thread-safe in order to prevent potential race conditions upon reception
of two OGMs from the same originator at the same time;
- patch 8 by Marek Lindner prevents potential double deletions
of TT Request objects from its lists which would lead to a kernel crash.
- patch 9 by Simon Wunderlich is ensuring that no enqueued packet is leaked
when an interface is deactivated;
- patch 10 by Linus Lüssing is setting the network header in the skb struct
right after a packet was delivered to the batman virtual interface so that
subsequent call to ip/ipv6_hdr() do not crash.

Please pull or let me know of any problem!

Thanks a lot David,
