We must call unregister_netdev when we couldn't initialise the
batman-adv module and the soft_device was registered. There are two
version of the function which we can use:
 * unregister_netdevice - removes device
 * unregister_netdev - takes rtnl semaphore and remove device

We don't hold the semaphore in a error case. So we must use

Signed-off-by: Sven Eckelmann <sven.eckelmann@gmx.de>
This patch is created for maint and should be applied using `git am`.
Following patches should be applied before:
 * batman-adv: Move device for icmp injection to debugfs
 * batman-adv: Move tables from sysfs to debugfs
