batman-adv: fix TT CRC computation by ensuring byte order
When computing the CRC on a 2byte variable the order of the bytes obviously alters the final result. This means that computing the CRC over the same value on two archs having different endianess leads to different numbers. The global and local translation table CRC computation routine makes this mistake while processing the clients VIDs. The result is a continuous CRC mismatching between nodes having different endianess. Fix this by converting the VID to Network Order before processing it. This guarantees that every node uses the same byte order.
