The following commit has been merged in the master branch:
commit 88ffc7d0e2cdcd3d8ba603d51b81a65712899c6c

    batman-adv: Return non-const ptr in batadv_getlink_net
    The returned net_namespace of batadv_getlink_net may be used with functions
    that potentially modify the struct. Thus it must return the pointer as
    non-const like rtnl_link_ops::get_link_net does.
