    batman-adv: fix gw_node_update() and gw_election()
    This is a regression from c4aac1ab9b973798163b34939b522f01e4d28ac9
    - gw_node_update() doesn't add a new gw_node in case of empty curr_gw.
    This means that at the beginning no gw_node is added, leading to an
    empty gateway list.
    - gw_election() is terminating in case of curr_gw == NULL. It has to
    terminate in case of curr_gw != NULL
