batman-adv: wait for call_rcu before unloading module
synchronize_rcu respective synchronize_net only waits for the rcu grace period to elapse and we may fail to finish the calls which were made to call_rcu in that time. In result the module could be unloaded during the execution of the RCU callbacks.
rcu_barrier will now wait for all outstanding RCU callbacks to finish before continuing.
