[B.A.T.M.A.N.] [PATCH 01/20] batman-adv: Add packet structures for multicast optimizations

Linus Lüssing linus.luessing at saxnet.de
Tue Dec 7 23:32:11 CET 2010


This adds the possibility to attach multicast announcements - so called
MCAs - to OGMs. It also adds a packet structure for the multicast path
selection and a packet types needed for the future multicast
optimizations.
