The following commit has been merged in the master branch:
commit c833484e5f3872a38fe232c663586069d5ad9645
Author: Antonio Quartulli <antonio at open-mesh.com>
Date:   Tue Nov 10 18:50:51 2015 +0100

    batman-adv: ELP - compute the metric based on the estimated throughput
    
    In case of wireless interface retrieve the throughput by
    querying cfg80211. To perform this call a separate work
    must be scheduled because the function may sleep and this
    is not allowed within an RCU protected context (RCU in this
    case is used to iterate over all the neighbours).
    
    Use ethtool to retrieve information about an Ethernet link
    like HALF/FULL_DUPLEX and advertised bandwidth (e.g.
    100/10Mbps).
    
    The metric is updated each time a new ELP packet is sent,
    this way it is possible to timely react to a metric
    variation which can imply (for example) a neighbour
    disconnection.
