Yuck.

The patch changes the prefix from "batman-adv:" to "batman_adv: "
so yes, it would break as-is.

I think the concept is broken though, I believe dmesg output
specifically is not guaranteed to remain stable, and batman should
use some other, perhaps private, logger based on ethtool events.

cheers, Joe
