From: Sven Eckelmann <sven@narfation.org>

A B.A.T.M.A.N. V virtual interface has an OGM2 packet buffer which is
initialized using data from the netdevice notifier and other rtnetlink
related hooks. It is sent regularly via various slave interfaces of the
batadv virtual interface and in this process also modified (realloced) to
integrate additional state information via TVLV containers.

It must be avoided that the worker item is executed without a common lock
with the netdevice notifier/rtnetlink helpers. Otherwise it can either
happen that half modified data is sent out or the functions modifying the
OGM2 buffer try to access already freed memory regions.

Fixes: 0da0035942d4 ("batman-adv: OGMv2 - add basic infrastructure")
