Hi Stuart,

thanks for reporting this.
Can you check if this is still an issue with the latest batctl version?
See the update here: https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2017-84c28282d8
It's in the testing repos as of now and should be relatively easy to install.

If the issue still persists can you please send me the output of
dmesg | grep batman_adv

Also please check if you see any AVC denials with SELinux enabled.

If this turns out to be an issue with the kernel module I will provide you with an update rpm so you can test.
