So after some more discussions with Marek and Sven, it looks like we have to use the rcu protected macros rcu_dereference() and rcu_assign_pointer() for the bat_priv->curr_gw and curr_gw->orig_node.
Changes here also include moving the kref_get() from unicast_send_skb() into gw_get_selected(). The orig_node could have been freed already at the time the kref_get() was called in unicast_send_skb().
I'd suggest you make a standalone patch because the patches address different problems.
