    batman-adv: Fix netlink dumping of BLA backbones
    The function batadv_bla_backbone_dump_bucket must be able to handle
    non-complete dumps of a single bucket. It tries to do that by saving the
    latest dumped index in *idx_skip to inform the caller about the current
    But the caller only assumes that buckets were not completely dumped when
    the return code is non-zero. This function must therefore also return a
    non-zero index when the dumping of an entry failed. Otherwise the caller
    will just skip all remaining buckets.
    And the function must also reset *idx_skip back to zero when it finished a
    bucket. Otherwise it will skip the same number of entries in the next
    bucket as the previous one had.
