    batman-adv: fix counter for multicast supporting nodes
    A miscounting of nodes having multicast optimizations enabled can lead
    to multicast packet loss in the following scenario:
    If the first OGM a node receives from another one has no multicast
    optimizations support (no multicast tvlv) then we are missing to
    increase the counter. This potentially leads to the wrong assumption
    that we could safely use multicast optimizations.
    Fixings this by increasing the counter if the initial OGM has the
    multicast TVLV unset, too.
    Introduced by 60432d756cf06e597ef9da511402dd059b112447
