    batman-adv: fix neigh reference imbalance
    When an interface is removed from batman-adv, the orig_ifinfo of a
    orig_node may be removed without releasing the router first.
    This will prevent the reference for the neighbor pointed at by the
    orig_ifinfo->router to be released, and this leak may result in
    reference leaks for the interface used by this neighbor. Fix that.
    This is a regression introduced by
    ("batman-adv: split out router from orig_node").
