    Okay, here is the first of the five patches. After applying all
    of them you should be able to build/join huge city mesh networks
    (e.g. with the OLSR protocol) with the most of the mac80211 wireless
    drivers by setting a fixed BSSID in the ad hoc mode. (If you found no
    other bug/problem.) This was not specified in the original standard,
    but is a widely used de facto standard.
    
    The first patch now completely disallow to set multicast MAC addresses
    as BSSID. The behavior before was really strange.
