commit c69c9353631ac78dcfd52f5493d9390c76f6c661

    batman-adv: Add Kconfig to the sources
    The Kconfig file is not used by the out-of-tree module but it has to be
    modified when new patches are added which would modify it in the kernel
    tree. Otherwise the information has to be stored somewhere else until
    someone submits it to the Networking maintainer.

+# B.A.T.M.A.N meshing protocol
+config BATMAN_ADV
+	tristate "B.A.T.M.A.N. Advanced Meshing Protocol"
+	depends on NET
+	select CRC16
+	select LIBCRC32C
+        default n
+	help
+          B.A.T.M.A.N. (better approach to mobile ad-hoc networking) is
+          a routing protocol for multi-hop ad-hoc mesh networks. The
+          networks may be wired or wireless. See
+          http://www.open-mesh.org/ for more information and user space
+          tools.
+	bool "Bridge Loop Avoidance"
+	depends on BATMAN_ADV && INET
+	default y
+	help
+	  This option enables BLA (Bridge Loop Avoidance), a mechanism
+	  to avoid Ethernet frames looping when mesh nodes are connected
+	  to both the same LAN and the same mesh. If you will never use
+	  more than one mesh node in the same LAN, you can safely remove
+	  this feature and save some space.
+	bool "Distributed ARP Table"
+	depends on BATMAN_ADV && INET
+	default n
+	help
+	  This option enables DAT (Distributed ARP Table), a DHT based
+	  mechanism that increases ARP reliability on sparse wireless
+	  mesh networks. If you think that your network does not need
+	  this option you can safely remove it and save some space.
+	bool "Network Coding"
+	depends on BATMAN_ADV
+	default n
+	help
+	  This option enables network coding, a mechanism that aims to
+	  increase the overall network throughput by fusing multiple
+	  packets in one transmission.
+	  Note that interfaces controlled by batman-adv must be manually
+	  configured to have promiscuous mode enabled in order to make
+	  network coding work.
+	  If you think that your network does not need this feature you
+	  can safely disable it and save some space.
+	bool "Multicast optimisation"
+	depends on BATMAN_ADV
+	default n
+	help
+	  This option enables the multicast optimisation which aims to
+	  reduce the air overhead while improving the reliability of
+	  multicast messages.
+	bool "B.A.T.M.A.N. debugging"
+	depends on BATMAN_ADV
+	depends on DEBUG_FS
+	help
+	  This is an option for use by developers; most people should
+	  say N here. This enables compilation of support for
+	  outputting debugging information to the kernel log. The
+	  output is controlled via the module parameter debug.
