Update on this...
As I said previously, after updating to the latest batman-adv, both routers connected to the lan stopped responding to pings.
I was playing around with the switch settings and setting " Edge + Root protection with STP" on the ports connected to the routers wired connection brought them back. Now they act according to the bridge-loop avoidance document and pick one of the routere to be the primary router to the lan.
Any idea why this is happening ?

I got the binaries from the openwrt prebuilt packages. However, now I rebuilt the image and built batman-adv 2011.myself. I will try this now and let you know.
However, now I am running into a much bigger issue. If two routers are plugged in to the same switch, bridge loop avoidance doesnt work and both of them are stopping responding to pings.
Here is my config.
bat0 if: wlan1: active.
wlan1: Mesh Network.
wlan0: Infrastructure network. eth0 : 4 lan ports eth1: 1 wan port
br-lan : wlan0 eth0 eth1 bat0
In case anybody else wants the binaries for Openwrt 10.03.1 RC 4 , let me know I can send it to you.

I am having trouble finding binaries of batman-adv 2011.0 for OpenWRT . Are they available or do I have to build them myself ?
as Linus already pointed out - bridge loop avoidance is not available before batman-adv 2011.0.0. That is what you need to address first.
Where did you get the binaries for batman-adv 2010.1.0 ? Does this source also provide newer binaries ? Unlike user space application a kernel module heavily depends on your system (kernel version / patches / etc). Which means nobody can give you binaries without having access to exactly the same system you are using.
