commit f1359d71089fe2fcb9fa06ea15da5940047162bd

    batman-adv: Drop documentation about debugfs files
    
    The debugfs files were marked as deprecated by commit fee04b6f72cf
    ("batman-adv: Mark debugfs functionality as deprecated"). The documentation
    should not advertise its usage anymore and instead promote the generic
    netlink family and a userspace tool to access it.
