    batman-adv: initialize up/down values when adding a gateway
    Without this initialization, gateways which actually announce up/down
    bandwidth of 0/0 could be added. If these nodes get purged via
    _batadv_purge_orig() later, the gw_node structure does not get removed
    since batadv_gw_node_delete() updates the gw_node with up/down
    bandwidth of 0/0, and the updating function then discards the change
    and does not free gw_node.
    This results in leaking the gw_node structures, which references other
    structures: gw_node -> orig_node -> orig_node_ifinfo -> hardif. When
    removing the interface later, the open reference on the hardif may cause
    hangs with the infamous "unregister_netdevice: waiting for mesh1 to
    become free. Usage count = 1" message.
