The following commit has been merged in the master branch:
commit ed75ccbe26f4a672a41556120390e67c80a2c441
Author: Marek Lindner <lindner_marek at yahoo.de>

    batman-adv: Correct rcu refcounting for batman_if
    
    It might be possible that 2 threads access the same data in the same
    rcu grace period. The first thread calls call_rcu() to decrement the
    refcount and free the data while the second thread increases the
    refcount to use the data. To avoid this race condition all refcount
    operations have to be atomic.
