Staging: batman-adv: Don't use net_dev after dev_put
dev_put allows a device to be freed when all its references are dropped. After that we are not allowed to access that information anymore. Access to the data structure of a net_device must be surrounded a dev_hold and ended using dev_put. batman-adv adds a device to its own management structure in hardif_add_interface and will release it in hardif_remove_interface. Thus it must hold a reference all the time between those functions to prevent any access to the already released net_device structure.
