[B.A.T.M.A.N.] [PATCH 14/14] batman-adv: Fix potentially broken skb network header access

From: Linus Lüssing <linus.luessing at c0d3.blue>

The two commits noted below added calls to ip_hdr() and ipv6_hdr(). They
need a correctly set skb network header.

Unfortunately we cannot rely on the device drivers to set it for us.
Therefore setting it in the beginning of the according ndo_start_xmit
handler.

Fixes: 1d8ab8d3c176 ("batman-adv: Modified forwarding behaviour for multicast packets")
Fixes: ab49886e3da7 ("batman-adv: Add IPv4 link-local/IPv6-ll-all-nodes multicast support")
