    batman-adv: avoid NULL dereferences and fix if check
    Gateway having bandwidth_down equal to zero are not accepted
    at all and so never added to the Gateway list.
    For this reason checking the bandwidth_down member in
    batadv_gw_out_of_range() is useless.
    This is probably a copy/paste error and this check was supposed
    to be "!gw_node" only. Moreover, the way the check is written
    now may also lead to a NULL dereference.
    Fix this by rewriting the if-condition properly.
