Series batman-adv: BATMAN_V: OGMv2 packet aggregation | expand

Commit Message

Linus Lüssing Aug. 4, 2019, 4:28 a.m. UTC
Instead of transmitting individual OGMv2 packets from the aggregation
queue merge those OGMv2 packets into a single one and transmit this
aggregate instead.

This reduces overhead as it saves an ethernet header and a transmission
per aggregated OGMv2 packet.
