This patches does not build. Please redo it more carefully.

You'll need to fix and resend the entire series. When you do so please
provide a cover letter, even if it only contains a couple of sentences
and separate the patches for bluetooth and batman-adv out as stand
alone patches, so the respective maintainers can pick them up.
