    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[1] will now wait for all outstanding RCU callbacks to finish
    before continuing.
