    batman-adv: ABI: Mark sysfs files as deprecated
    The sysfs files are replaced by the batadv generic netlink family. The old
    sysfs configuration interface was frowned upon by other kernel developers.
    But the files cannot be removed immediately because userspace tools might
    still depend on it. Instead schedule for its removal in 2021.
