Subject: [PATCH 04/19] batman-adv: convert bat_priv->tt_crc from atomic_t to uint16_t

In the code we neever need to atomically check and set the bat_priv->tt_crc
field value. It is simply set and read once in different pieces of the code.
Therefore this field can be safely be converted from atomic_t to uint16_t.
