Commit Message

Linus Lüssing July 11, 2016, 12:39 p.m. UTC
Instead of latching onto the OGM period, this patch introduces a worker
dedicated to multicast TT and TVLV updates.

The reasoning is, that upon roaming especially the translation table
should be updated timely to minimize connectivity issues.

With BATMAN V, the idea is to greatly increase the OGM interval to
reduce overhead. Unfortunately, right now this could lead to
a bad user experience if multicast traffic is involved.

Therefore this patch introduces a fixed 500ms update interval for
multicast TT entries and the multicast TVLV.

RFC Notes:
* Patch compile tested only
* Someone should check whether adding/removing multicast TT entries
  from this new entry point is save like this
