batman-adv: avoid potential race condition when adding a new neighbour
When adding a new neighbour it is important to atomically perform the following: - check if the neighbour already exists - append the neighbour to the proper list If the two operations are not performed in an atomic context it is possible that two concurrent insertions add the same neighbour twice.
