I'm trying to get wpa-none happy on my bullet m5's running
batman-adv (aa-rc1 with batman-adv 2012.3.0). I can make it work by
running wpa_supplicant manually with the correct options but am
interested in having it work through the uci config files. Is this
possible? The wpa_supplicant.sh script seems to want to force
wpa-psk with any options that force wpa_supplicant, which generate a
relatively useless supplicant config file for ibss. This also makes
wlan0 get the default 1500 MTU.
Here's my "semi-working" wpa_supplicant.conf file, after I increase
the MTU then batman talks properly and sees the other node.
semi-working because even though batctl o sees the other node it
can't ping it unless the psk is commented out.. :-\

Have you made sure that WPA-NONE works without batman-adv? It appears
that openwrt currently doesn't support WPA-NONE at all driver-wise, at
least this bug report suggests it (don't know if its a problem in wpa_supplicant,
madwifi, or any other driver):
You can try running WPA-NONE, set some IPs and let the nodes ping each other.
If this works, batman-adv should[tm] work too.
