    batman-adv: Accept only filled wifi station info
    The wifi driver can decide to not provide parts of the station info. For
    example, the expected throughput of the station can be omitted when the
    used rate control doesn't provide this kind of information.
    The B.A.T.M.A.N. V implementation must therefore check the filled bitfield
    before it tries to access the expected_throughput of the returned
