Use 'skb_queue_purge()' instead of re-implementing it.

Signed-off-by: Christophe JAILLET <>
BTW, I don't really see the need of 'aggr_list_lock'. I think that the code
could be refactored to drop 'aggr_list_lock' and use the already existing
This would require to use the lock-free __skb_... variants when working on

As far as I understand, the use of 'aggr_list' and 'aggr_list_lock' is
limited to bat_v_ogm.c'. So the impact would be limited.
This would avoid a useless locking that never fails, so the performance
gain should be really limited.

So, I'm not sure this would be more readable and/or future proof, so
I just note it here to open the discussion.

If interested, I have a (compiled tested only) patch that implements this
