Revert: "Staging: batman-adv: Adding netfilter-bridge hooks"
This reverts commit 96d592ed599434d2d5f339a1d282871bc6377d2c. The netfilter hook seems to be misused and may leak skbs in situations when NF_HOOK returns NF_STOLEN. It may not filter everything as expected. Also the ethernet bridge tables are not yet capable to understand batman-adv packet correctly. It was only added for testing purposes and can be removed again.
