commit ae2b30082f9b62a32f1f2b2fbad5ce301ba317de

    batman-adv: count batman_if list queries as reference
    
    The return of get_batman_if_by_netdev and get_active_batman_if leaks a
    pointer from the rcu protected list of interfaces. We must protect it to
    prevent a too early release of the memory. Those functions must increase
    the reference counter before rcu_read_unlock or it may be to late to
    prevent a free.
    
    hardif_add_interface must also increase the reference count for the
    returned batman_if to make the behaviour consistent.
