NETROM: Fix use of static buffer
The static variable used by nr_call_to_digi might result in corruption if multiple threads are trying to usee a node or neighbour via ioctl. Fixed by having the caller pass a structure in. This is safe because nr_add_node rsp. nr_add_neigh will allocate a permanent structure, if needed. Signed-off-by: Ralf Baechle <ralf@linux-mips.org> Signed-off-by: David S.
