Subject[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 098/133] batman-adv: fix multicast counter when purging originators
3.16.7-ckt18 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: =?UTF-8?q?Linus=20L=C3=BCssing?= <>

commit a5164886b0bdadd662f9715a7541432c4d1a0d99 upstream.

When purging an orig_node we should only decrease counter tracking the
number of nodes without multicast optimizations support if it was
increased through this orig_node before.

A not yet quite initialized orig_node (meaning it did not have its turn
in the mcast-tvlv handler so far) which gets purged would not adhere to
this and will lead to a counter imbalance.

Fixing this by adding a check whether the orig_node is mcast-initalized
before decreasing the counter in the mcast-orig_node-purging routine.

Introduced by 60432d756cf06e597ef9da511402dd059b112447
("batman-adv: Announce new capability via multicast TVLV")
