    batman-adv: Remove unneeded rcu_read_lock
    Regions which do not use rcu functions don't need to protected by
    rcu_read_lock. If we want to protect data from being freed than it must
    be covered by the same read-side critical section or otherwise the grace
    period may already ended and freed the memory before we called
    rcu_read_lock again.
