    batman-adv: Avoid relation operator comparison with bool
    commit 785ea1144182 ("batman-adv: Distributed ARP Table - create DHT helper
    functions") introduced a return check of batadv_compare_eth which uses a
    boolean return value since commit 16af73458aca ("batman-adv: main,
    batadv_compare_eth return bool"). A relational (<, >, <= or >=) operator
    is not the right one for such a check.
