Subject: [PATCH 4/8] batman-adv: set TT_CLIENT_NEW flag before invoking hash_add()

From: Antonio Quartulli <ordex@...istici.org>

In case of a new tt_local_entry, the TT_CLIENT_NEW flag has to be set before
adding such entry to the hash table. Otherwise, it opens a race condition
in which the entry can be found but the flag has not been set.
