It was one of the goals to *not* name the batadv hardif interface proto 
"batadv". And I wanted to have the batman-adv interface proto named "batadv" 
because this is the rtnl kind string. So you actually create batman-adv 
meshifs using:

   ip link add dev bat0 type batadv

But we can call this proto also "batadv_meshif" if there is a strong 
preference for this name.

Kind regards,
