Sample crash report:
batman_adv: batadv0: The MTU of interface batadv_slave_1 is too small (1500) to handle the transport of batman-adv packets. Packets going over this interface will be fragmented on layer2 which could impact the performance. Setting the MTU to 1560 would solve the problem.
batman_adv: batadv0: Not using interface batadv_slave_1 (retrying later): interface not active
device hsr_slave_0 entered promiscuous mode
device hsr_slave_1 entered promiscuous mode

other info that might help us debug this:
 Possible unsafe locking scenario:

       ----
  lock(&rdev->wiphy.mtx);
  lock(&rdev->wiphy.mtx);

 *** DEADLOCK ***

 May be due to missing lock nesting notation
