    batman-adv: protect tt_local_entry from concurrent delete events
    The tt_local_entry deletion performed in batadv_tt_local_remove() was neither
    protecting against simultaneous deletes nor checking whether the element was
    still part of the list before calling hlist_del_rcu().
    Replacing the hlist_del_rcu() call with batadv_hash_remove() provides adequate
    protection via hash spinlocks as well as an is-element-still-in-hash check to
    avoid 'blind' hash removal.
    Fixes: 068ee6e204e1 ("batman-adv: roaming handling mechanism redesign")
