    batman-adv: Remove unused skb_reset_mac_header()
    During broadcast queueing, the skb_reset_mac_header() sets the skb
    to a place invalid for a MAC header, pointing right into the
    batman-adv broadcast packet. Luckily, no one seems to actually use
    eth_hdr(skb) afterwards until batadv_send_skb_packet() resets the
    header to a valid position again.
    Therefore removing this unnecessary, weird skb_reset_mac_header()
