By the way, the netns support is another good
reason to switch from the
debugfs interfaces to a netlink-based interface (as the netlink interface
wouldn't need userspace applications like batctl to be aware of the
namespaces). I guess I should finally finish the patches I started writing
So what is your suggestion here? Should the namespace support for namespaces
be rejected and you send in your netlink implementation patches? Or should
this patch be merged and be removed (together with the rest of the debugfs
stuff) when your netlink support is integrated?
I would expect the debugfs code to stay around for a while, so people
have a chance to upgrade their batctl and alfred to the new API. We
probably need one release with both?
