    batman-adv: Prevent duplicated global TT entry
    The function batadv_tt_global_orig_entry_add is responsible for adding new
    tt_orig_list_entry to the orig_list. It first checks whether the entry
    already is in the list or not. If it is, then the creation of a new entry
    is aborted.
    But the lock for the list is only held when the list is really modified.
    This could lead to duplicated entries because another context could create
    an entry with the same key between the check and the list manipulation.
    The check and the manipulation of the list must therefore be in the same
    locked code section.
