The following commit has been merged in the master branch:
commit 747e4221a03cde62402b614ca1f8e961b8416130
Author: Sven Eckelmann <sven at narfation.org>
Date:   Sat May 14 23:14:50 2011 +0200

    batman-adv: Add const type qualifier for pointers
    
    batman-adv uses pointers which are marked as const and should not
    violate that type qualifier by passing it to functions which force a
    cast to the non-const version.
    
    Signed-off-by: Sven Eckelmann <sven at narfation.org>
