batman-adv: use __dev_get_by_index instead of dev_get_by_index to find interface
The following call chains indicate that batadv_is_on_batman_iface() is always under rtnl_lock protection as call_netdevice_notifier() is protected by rtnl_lock. So if __dev_get_by_index() rather than dev_get_by_index() is used to find interface handler in it, this would help us avoid to change interface reference counter. call_netdevice_notifier() batadv_hard_if_event() batadv_hardif_add_interface() batadv_is_valid_iface() batadv_is_on_batman_iface() Cc: Antonio Quartulli <antonio@meshcoding.com> Signed-off-by: Ying Xue <ying.xue@windriver.com> Acked-by: Antonio Quartulli <antonio@meshcoding.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
