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

The only thing remaining which I really don't like is this hash helper
library thing in here.
It's a terrible abstraction and very inefficient. Iteration uses
function calls, as does removal. Key comparisons use callbacks, via
indirection function pointers, also very inefficient.
Just use the "struct hlist_head" and "struct hlist_node" objects we
have generically already. Inline the list iteration, as well as the
key comparisons and the node linking/unlinking.
Otherwise if you think your hash helpers are so incredibly useful,
propose for their inclusion under lib/ on linux-kernel
But frankly, I wish you a lot of luck with that. :-)
