I've read a little bit through the different descriptions and it sound good... 
for the reading situation. The problem is that it is nearly never clear that 
you control the behavior of batman-adv through that specific file. For example 
/sys/class/net/<iface>/batman-adv/mesh_iface - I think it is especially 
important for GregKH to see that it needed is now associated to the iface and 
we attach it to the mesh_iface through that file when he should give us some 
advice what virtual fs should be used for what kind of information.

Best regards,
