Antonio Quartulli - Nov. 16, 2012, 8:49 a.m.
Hello David,

here is small set of fixes intended for net/linux-3.7.
These patches are fixing some interoperability problems due to the features we
added in 3.7. Mainly we have two big issues: one is preventing clients connected
to the mesh network to contact any other hosts, caused by a not proper
translation table handling; the second one compromises the AP isolation feature
causing it to be completely useless, no matter it was on or off.

Please, let me know if there is any problem.

Thank you very much!
		Antonio

  batman-adv: process broadcast packets in BLA earlier (2012-11-16 09:36:54 +0100)

----------------------------------------------------------------
Included fixes are:
- update the client entry status flags when using the "early client
  detection". This makes the Distributed AP isolation correctly work;
- transfer the client entry status flags when recovering the translation
  table from another node. This makes the Distributed AP isolation correctly
  work;
- prevent the "early client detection mechanism" to add clients belonging to
  other backbone nodes in the same LAN. This breaks connectivity when using this
  mechanism together with the Bridge Loop Avoidance
- process broadcast packets with the Bridge Loop Avoidance before any other
  component. BLA can possibly drop the packets based on the source address. This
  makes the "early client detection mechanism" correctly work when used with
  BLA.
