This patchset introduces optimizations for batman-adv in setups having several gateways into a common (switched) Ethernet backbone network especially if dat is additionally enabled.
Using the current implementation with bla and dat enabled, several problems can be observed in a real setup:
- Multiplication of ARP replies from dat enabled gateways and dat enabled
mesh nodes leading to an "ARP reply storm" in the common backbone network. 2. In rare corner cases bla does not fully prevent looping of unicast frames in the direction Backbone --> mesh --> backbone and looping of multicast frames in the direction mesh --> backbone --> mesh. The latter can lead to temporary confusion in the switched backbone resulting in packet loss and communication timeouts.
The observed problems are solved by introduction of additional rules for the dat handling, bla packet forwarding and bla claiming/unclaiming of clients.
- changed function name to batadv_bla_check_claim
- put added include file in alphabetical order
- added check to exclude ip address 0.0.0.0 from snooping
Doesn't seem to apply:

Btw. there seems to be an "a" missing in "enabled" of the Subject of the first patch :)
Kind regards, Sven
