3.7-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

From: Akinobu Mita <akinobu.mita@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 143cdd8f33909ff5a153e3f02048738c5964ba26 ]

batadv_iv_ogm_emit_send_time() attempts to calculates a random integer
in the range of 'orig_interval +- BATADV_JITTER' by the below lines.

        msecs = atomic_read(&bat_priv->orig_interval) - BATADV_JITTER;
        msecs += (random32() % 2 * BATADV_JITTER);

But it actually gets 'orig_interval' or 'orig_interval - BATADV_JITTER'
because '%' and '*' have same precedence and associativity is
left-to-right.

This adds the parentheses at the appropriate position so that it matches
original intension.
