Wow. That's more ifdefs than mac80211 needs to do this.

and those are particularly ugly.

Especially for the mesh_dev thing, you should probably have a static
inline that returns priv->mesh_dev (mesh case) and NULL (non-mesh case)
and rely on the compiler to elide as much code as possible.

E.g. this:

>  	if (priv->mesh_dev && (priv->mesh_connect_status == LBS_CONNECTED))
>  		netif_wake_queue(priv->mesh_dev);
> +#endif

wouldn't then need an ifdef.
