thank you very much for fixing this bug!
However, any patch sent against the B.A.T.M.A.N.-Advanced code should have a
subject starting with "batman-adv:".
Other than that I think this kind of patch
doesn't really need to report the entire kernel message: a more exhaustive
commit message is enough (e.g. use function names). I personally needed to read
the patch before understanding what you were trying to explain in the message.
Then, we usually pick this patches up in our repo and then we send them as batch
to the networking tree via pull request, therefore you can also skip the netdev
ml when sending the fixes.
Thank you very much!
