[PATCH 5.4 023/129] batman-adv: Avoid uninitialized chaddr when handling DHCP

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

[ Upstream commit 303216e76dcab6049c9d42390b1032f0649a8206 ]

The gateway client code can try to optimize the delivery of DHCP packets to
avoid broadcasting them through the whole mesh. But also transmissions to
the client can be optimized by looking up the destination via the chaddr of
the DHCP packet.

But the chaddr is currently only done when chaddr is fully inside the
non-paged area of the skbuff. Otherwise it will not be initialized and the
unoptimized path should have been taken.

But the implementation didn't handle this correctly. It didn't retrieve the
correct chaddr but still tried to perform the TT lookup with this
uninitialized memory.
