Hello David,

this is the new version of my last pull request (issued on 2012-04-25).
This patchset is intended for net-next/linux-3.5.

Since last series I only removed the biggest_unsigned_int() macro.

Let me know if there is any other problem.

Thank you,

  batman-adv: split neigh_new function into generic and batman iv specific parts (2012-04-29 10:50:10 +0200)

Included changes:

* a new feature has been introduced: D.A.T. (Distributed ARP Table). It is a
  mechanism based on DHT theory that creates a distributed (mesh network wide)
  ARP cache in order to speed up ARP resolutions in sparse wireless mesh
* in order to satisfy DAT requirements a new unicast packet type, namely
  UNICAST_4ADDR, has been introduced. Backward compatibility has been kept: not
  updated nodes will simply drop the packet and ignore DAT mechanism.
* minor fixes and cleanups
* minor routing protocol API cleanups
