Hello David,

here you have another patchset with two new features intended for

Patch 1/9 adds the new UNICAST_4ADDR packet type which contains both the source
and the destination node addresses (unlike the classic UNICAST which contains
the destination only) and can encapsulate different packet subtypes.

Then all the remaining patches introduce the new Distributed ARP Table (DAT)
component. It is the first user of the new packet type introduced by 1/9.

DAT is the results of Antonio Quartulli's Google Summer Of Code 2011.
It was already sent to netdev once in the past, but got rejected because of its
dependency on the ARP/neigh layer internals. In this new version a batman-adv
private ARP storage has been implemented, so dropping any possible relationship
with the inner neigh code.

Please, let me know if there is any problem.

Thank you very much,

  batman-adv: Add get_ethtool_stats() support for DAT (2012-11-02 21:50:15 +0100)

Included changes:
- new packet type called UNICAST_4ADDR: in this packet it is possible to find
  both source and destination node (in the classic UNICAST header only the
  destination field exists).
- a new feature: Distributed ARP Table (D.A.T.). It aims to reduce ARP lookups
  latency by means of a simil-DHT approach.

Antonio Quartulli (8):
      batman-adv: add UNICAST_4ADDR packet type
      batman-adv: Distributed ARP Table - add a new debug log level
      batman-adv: Distributed ARP Table - create DHT helper functions
      batman-adv: Distributed ARP Table - implement local storage
      batman-adv: Distributed ARP Table - add ARP parsing functions
      batman-adv: Distributed ARP Table - add snooping functions for ARP messages
      batman-adv: Distributed ARP Table - add compile option
      batman-adv: Distributed ARP Table - add runtime switch
