    batman-adv: Remove variable deprecated by skb_put_data
    skb_put_data makes it unnecessary to store the skb_put return value to copy
    some data to the packet. The returned pointer of skb_put_data should
    therefore not stored by functions which previously only used it to copy
    some data.
