batman-adv: Allow to use rntl_link for device creation/deletion
The sysfs configuration interface of batman-adv to add/remove soft-interfaces is not deadlock free and doesn't follow the currently common way to create new virtual interfaces. An additional interface though rtnl_link is introduced which provides easy device creation/deletion with tools like "ip": $ ip link add dev bat0 type batadv $ ip link del dev bat0 Signed-off-by: Sven Eckelmann <sven@narfation.org> Signed-off-by: Marek Lindner <lindner_marek@yahoo.de> Signed-off-by: Antonio Quartulli <ordex@autistici.org>
