Speedy join only works when the received packet is either broadcast or an
4addr unicast packet. Thus packets converted from broadcast to unicast via
the gateway handling code have to be converted to 4addr packets to allow
the receiving gateway server to add the sender address as temporary entry
to the translation table.

Not doing it will make the batman-adv gateway server drop the DHCP response
in many situations because it doesn't yet have the TT entry for the
destination of the DHCP response.
