    batman-adv: Unify fragment size calculation
    The fragmentation code was replaced in 610bfc6bc99bc83680d190ebc69359a05fc7f605
    ("batman-adv: Receive fragmented packets and merge") by an implementation which
    can handle up to 16 fragments of a packet. The packet is prepared for the split
    in fragments by the function batadv_frag_send_packet and the actual split is
    done by batadv_frag_create.
    Both functions calculate the size of a fragment themself. But their calculation
    differs because batadv_frag_send_packet also subtracts ETH_HLEN. Therefore,
    the check in batadv_frag_send_packet "can a full fragment can be created?" may
    return true even when batadv_frag_create cannot create a full fragment.
    The function batadv_frag_create doesn't check the size of the skb before
    splitting it and therefore might try to create a larger fragment than the
    remaining buffer. This creates an integer underflow and an invalid len is given
    to skb_split.
