[PATCH 481/577] Staging: batman-adv: Update pointer to ethhdr after skb_copy

From: Sven Eckelmann <sven.eckelmann at gmx.de>

We must ensure that all pointer to a socket buffer are updated when we
copy a socket buffer and free our reference to the old one.
Another part of the kernel could also free its reference which maybe
removes the buffer completely. In that situation we would would feed
wrong information to the routing algorithm after the memory area is
written again by someone else.
