Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 07/39] batman-adv: Fix refcnt leak in batadv_v_ogm_process

From: Xiyu Yang <xiyuyang19@...an.edu.cn>

[ Upstream commit 6f91a3f7af4186099dd10fa530dd7e0d9c29747d ]

batadv_v_ogm_process() invokes batadv_hardif_neigh_get(), which returns
a reference of the neighbor object to "hardif_neigh" with increased
refcount.

When batadv_v_ogm_process() returns, "hardif_neigh" becomes invalid, so
the refcount should be decreased to keep refcount balanced.

The reference counting issue happens in one exception handling paths of
batadv_v_ogm_process(). When batadv_v_ogm_orig_get() fails to get the
orig node and returns NULL, the refcnt increased by
batadv_hardif_neigh_get() is not decreased, causing a refcnt leak.

Fix this issue by jumping to "out" label when batadv_v_ogm_orig_get()
fails to get the orig node.
