B.A.T.M.A.N. (better approach to mobile ad-hoc networking) is a routing
protocol for multi-hop ad-hoc mesh networks. The networks may be wired or
wireless. See http://www.open-mesh.org/ for more information and user space
tools.

The kernel has a hamming weight library function which takes advantage
of population count instructions on cpus that suport it, and also has
a sw version than is faster than what you're doing here, please use
it.

The interfaces are called "hweight{8,16,32,64}()" where the number in
the name indicates the bit-size of the word the interface operates on.

I also notice that this code uses it's own internal buffering scheme
with kmalloc()'d buffers, then seperately allocates actual SKB's and
copies the data there.

Just use the SKB facilities how they were designed to be used, instead
of needlessly inventing new things.  Allocate your initial SKB and put
the initial forwarding header in it, then when you want to send a copy
off, skb_clone() it, and push the other bits you want at the head
and/or the tail of the cloned SKB, then simply send it off.

Correct, the inner loop is a quite straight forward implementation without any 
kind of optimization. I will change that.

Good catch. That comes from a time when batman-adv was a minimalistic 
conversation of the userspace proof of concept implementation. This happens 
for example in vis.c, icmp_socket.c and send.c (just grepping for 
send_raw_packet is a good way to find those places). But is also happening 
with batman_if->packet_buff in schedule_own_packet and similar places.

I would leave that to the original author of those functions.

thanks,
	Sven

Whoever you leave it to, this needs to be fixed up before this
code can be integrated.  So if those people are not active or
don't have time, you very much should consider the reality that
you might have to do these fixups yourself.

They are active and informed about it. I never wanted that you integrate it 
right away, but asked for a review to get everything in shape for the real 
move from staging to net.

Maybe there is a misunderstanding who I am. When you look at the MAINTAINERS 
file than you will notice that my name doesn't appear. I just volunteered to 
keep the different branches in sync and submitted it for a review to you and 
netdev after a discussion with Marek Lindner. He is together with Simon 
Wunderlich the real maintainer of the codebase.

I will stop here if you prefer not to talk with an intermediary. So Marek or 
Simon have to work directly with you.

thanks,
	Sven

No worries - we are quite alive and follow the discussion closely. The raised 
issues will be addressed pretty soon.

@Sven: I think you do a great job integrating all those patches and trees. 
Your helping hand would be really missed.  :)

Marek

Minor comments...

1. Is it ok to have a README in drivers directory? why not moving it
to Documentation/networking?
2. Compilation error, one extra arguments passed

- stats = (struct net_device_stats *)dev_get_stats(skb->dev, &temp);
+ stats = (struct net_device_stats *)dev_get_stats(skb->dev, &temp);

  LD      kernel/built-in.o
net/batman-adv/hard-interface.c: In function 'batman_skb_recv':
net/batman-adv/hard-interface.c:482: error: too many arguments to
function 'dev_get_stats'
make[2]: *** [net/batman-adv/hard-interface.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make[1]: *** [net/batman-adv] Error 2
make: *** [net] Error 2

Thanks, I will check if Documentation/networking is a better place.

Do you use linux-next or net-next-2.6? Because this is needed to get it 
compiled as dev_get_stats was changed some time ago (commit 
28172739f0a276eb8d6ca917b3974c2edb036da3), but this is not part of 2.6.35.

Even so, that cast is a bug following commit
3cfde79c6c7c8002375c4a8e5be7f602fbb9675d.

I've only noticed the changes to the batman-adv code in staging through 
28172739f0a276eb8d6ca917b3974c2edb036da3, but missed that more is needed with 
the above mentioned one. Thanks a lot for the hint.

+
+BATMAN-ADV
+----------
+
+Batman  advanced  is  a new approach to wireless networking which
+does no longer operate on the IP basis. Unlike the batman daemon,
+which  exchanges  information  using UDP packets and sets routing
+tables, batman-advanced operates on ISO/OSI Layer 2 only and uses
+and  routes  (or  better: bridges) Ethernet Frames. It emulates a
+virtual network switch of all nodes participating.  Therefore all
+nodes  appear  to be link local, thus all higher operating proto-
+cols won't be affected by any changes within the network. You can
+run almost any protocol above batman advanced, prominent examples
+are: IPv4, IPv6, DHCP, IPX.
+
+Batman advanced was implemented as a Linux kernel driver  to  re-
+duce the overhead to a minimum. It does not depend on any (other)
+network driver, and can be used on wifi as well as ethernet  lan,
+vpn,  etc ... (anything with ethernet-style layer 2).
+
+CONFIGURATION
+-------------
+
+Load the batman-adv module into your kernel:
+
+# insmod batman-adv.ko
+
+The  module  is now waiting for activation. You must add some in-
+terfaces on which batman can operate. After  loading  the  module
+batman  advanced  will scan your systems interfaces to search for
+compatible interfaces. Once found, it will create  subfolders  in
+the /sys directories of each supported interface, e.g.
+
+# ls /sys/class/net/eth0/batman_adv/
+# iface_status  mesh_iface
+
+If an interface does not have the "batman_adv" subfolder it prob-
+ably is not supported. Not supported  interfaces  are:  loopback,
+non-ethernet and batman's own interfaces.
+
+Note:  After the module was loaded it will continuously watch for
+new interfaces to verify the compatibility. There is no  need  to
+reload the module if you plug your USB wifi adapter into your ma-
+chine after batman advanced was initially loaded.
+
+To activate a  given  interface  simply  write  "bat0"  into  its
+"mesh_iface" file inside the batman_adv subfolder:
+
+# echo bat0 > /sys/class/net/eth0/batman_adv/mesh_iface
+
+Repeat  this step for all interfaces you wish to add.  Now batman
+starts using/broadcasting on this/these interface(s).
+
+By reading the "iface_status" file you can check its status:
+
+# cat /sys/class/net/eth0/batman_adv/iface_status
+# active
+
+To deactivate an interface you have  to  write  "none"  into  its
+"mesh_iface" file:
+
+# echo none > /sys/class/net/eth0/batman_adv/mesh_iface
+
+
+All  mesh  wide  settings  can be found in batman's own interface
+folder:
+
+#  ls  /sys/class/net/bat0/mesh/
+#  aggregate_ogm   originators        transtable_global  vis_mode
+#  orig_interval   transtable_local   vis_data
+
+
+Some of the files contain all sort of status information  regard-
+ing  the  mesh  network.  For  example, you can view the table of
+originators (mesh participants) with:
+
+# cat /sys/class/net/bat0/mesh/originators
+
+Other files allow to change batman's behaviour to better fit your
+requirements.  For instance, you can check the current originator
+interval (value in milliseconds which determines how often batman
+sends its broadcast packets):
+
+# cat /sys/class/net/bat0/mesh/orig_interval
+# status: 1000
+
+and also change its value:
+
+# echo 3000 > /sys/class/net/bat0/mesh/orig_interval
+
+In very mobile scenarios, you might want to adjust the originator
+interval to a lower value. This will make the mesh  more  respon-
+sive to topology changes, but will also increase the overhead.
+
+
+USAGE
+-----
+
+To  make use of your newly created mesh, batman advanced provides
+a new interface "bat0" which you should use from this  point  on.
+All  interfaces  added  to  batman  advanced are not relevant any
+longer because batman handles them for you. Basically, one "hands
+over" the data by using the batman interface and batman will make
+sure it reaches its destination.
+
+The "bat0" interface can be used like any  other  regular  inter-
+face.  It needs an IP address which can be either statically con-
+figured or dynamically (by using DHCP or similar services):
+
+# NodeA: ifconfig bat0 192.168.0.1
+# NodeB: ifconfig bat0 192.168.0.2
+# NodeB: ping 192.168.0.1
+
+Note:  In  order to avoid problems remove all IP addresses previ-
+ously assigned to interfaces now used by batman advanced, e.g.
+
+# ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
+
+
+VISUALIZATION
+-------------
+
+If you want topology visualization, at least one mesh  node  must
+be configured as VIS-server:
+
+# echo "server" > /sys/class/net/bat0/mesh/vis_mode
+
+Each  node  is  either configured as "server" or as "client" (de-
+fault: "client").  Clients send their topology data to the server
+next to them, and server synchronize with other servers. If there
+is no server configured (default) within the  mesh,  no  topology
+information   will  be  transmitted.  With  these  "synchronizing
+servers", there can be 1 or more vis servers sharing the same (or
+at least very similar) data.
+
+When  configured  as  server,  you can get a topology snapshot of
+your mesh:
+
+# cat /sys/class/net/bat0/mesh/vis_data
+
+This raw output is intended to be easily parsable and convertable
+with  other tools. Have a look at the batctl README if you want a
+vis output in dot or json format for instance and how those  out-
+puts could then be visualised in an image.
+
+The raw format consists of comma separated values per entry where
+each entry is giving information about a  certain  source  inter-
+face.  Each  entry can/has to have the following values:
+-> "mac" - mac address of an originator's source interface
+           (each line begins with it)
+-> "TQ mac  value"  -  src mac's link quality towards mac address
+                       of a neighbor originator's interface which
+                       is being used for routing
+-> "HNA mac" - HNA announced by source mac
+-> "PRIMARY" - this  is a primary interface
+-> "SEC mac" - secondary mac address of source
+               (requires preceding PRIMARY)
+
+The TQ value has a range from 4 to 255 with 255 being  the  best.
+The HNA entries are showing which hosts are connected to the mesh
+via bat0 or being bridged into the mesh network.  The PRIMARY/SEC
+values are only applied on primary interfaces
+
+
+LOGGING/DEBUGGING
+-----------------
+
+All error messages, warnings and information messages are sent to
+the kernel log. Depending on your operating  system  distribution
+this  can  be read in one of a number of ways. Try using the com-
+mands: dmesg, logread, or looking in the files  /var/log/kern.log
+or  /var/log/syslog.  All  batman-adv  messages are prefixed with
+"batman-adv:" So to see just these messages try
+
+# dmesg | grep batman-adv
+
+When investigating problems with your mesh network  it  is  some-
+times  necessary  to see more detail debug messages. This must be
+enabled when compiling the batman-adv module. When building  bat-
+man-adv  as  part of kernel, use "make menuconfig" and enable the
+option "B.A.T.M.A.N. debugging".
+
+The additional debug output is by default disabled. It can be en-
+abled  either  at kernel modules load time or during run time. To
+enable debug output at module load time, add the module parameter
+debug=<value>.  <value> can take one of four values.
+
+0 - All  debug  output  disabled
+1 - Enable messages related to routing / flooding / broadcasting
+2 - Enable route or hna added / changed / deleted
+3 - Enable all messages
+
+e.g.
+
+# modprobe batman-adv debug=2
+
+will load the module and enable debug messages for when routes or
+HNAs change.
+
+The debug output can also be changed at runtime  using  the  file
+/sys/module/batman-adv/parameters/debug. e.g.
+
+# echo 2 > /sys/module/batman-adv/parameters/debug
+
+enables debug messages for when routes or HNAs
+
+The  debug  output  is sent to the kernel logs. So try dmesg, lo-
+gread, etc to see the debug messages.
+
+
+BATCTL
+------
+
+As batman advanced operates on layer 2 all hosts participating in
+the  virtual switch are completely transparent for all  protocols
+above layer 2. Therefore the common diagnosis tools do  not  work
+as  expected.  To  overcome these problems batctl was created. At
+the  moment the  batctl contains ping,  traceroute,  tcpdump  and
+interfaces to the kernel module settings.
+
+For more information, please see the manpage (man batctl).
+
+batctl is available on http://www.open-mesh.org/
