Really?  I wasn't aware of that. Looks like all the batadv bugs are closed and
the patches were checked in (well, I'm going by what I can find in my 'bugs'
emails).  Admittedly we may be somewhat slow to check them in...

I also don't quite see why this is leading to duplicated code. Do you mean
duplicated between Wireshark and somewhere else or...?
