Subject[48/53] batman-adv: fix tt_local_reset_flags() function
3.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Antonio Quartulli <ordex@autistici.org>

commit 31901264511cf20c5ed33b8649a3ca9ce28df60b upstream.

Currently the counter of tt_local_entry structures (tt_local_num) is incremented
each time the tt_local_reset_flags() is invoked causing the node to send wrong
TT_REPONSE packets containing a copy of non-initialised memory thus corrupting
other nodes global translation table and making higher level communication
impossible.
