[B.A.T.M.A.N.] [PATCH 19/20] batman-adv: Make number of (re)broadcasts configurable via sysfs

Linus Lüssing linus.luessing at saxnet.de
Tue Dec 7 23:32:29 CET 2010


Depending on the scenario, people might want to adjust the number of
(re)broadcast of data packets - usually higher values in sparse or lower
values in dense networks.
