Those are related changes actually. It looks like this:

	struct ethhdr { ...  __be16 h_proto; }

netinet/if_ether.h (musl):
	struct ethhdr { ...  uint16_t h_proto; }

and that's where batctl code gets __be* types from if I got it right,
because it was written with linux/if_ether.h in mind.

Anyway, this is non-obvious and -musl-fixes.patch would work just as well,
so I'm sending v2 with the patch renamed.

No problem, patch sent upstream.
