    batman-adv: add bat_neigh_is_equiv_or_better API function
    
    Each routing protocol has its own metric semantic and
    therefore is the protocol itself the only component able to
    compare two metrics to check their "similarity".
    
    This new API allows each routing protocol to implement its
    own logic and make the external code protocol agnostic.
