tipc: filter out messages not intended for this host
Port commit 20deb48d16fdd07ce2fdc8d03ea317362217e085 from git://tipc.cslab.ericsson.net/pub/git/people/allan/tipc.git Part of the large effort I'm trying to help with getting all the downstreamed code from windriver forward ported to the upstream tree Origional commit message Restore check to filter out inadverdently received messages This patch reimplements a check that allows TIPC to discard messages that are not intended for it. This check was present in TIPC 1.5/1.6, but was removed by accident during the development of TIPC 1.7; it has now been updated to account for new features present in TIPC 1.7 and reinserted into TIPC. The main benefit of this check is to filter out messages arriving from orphaned link endpoints, which can arise when a node exits the network and then re-enters it with a different TIPC network address (i.e. <Z.C.N> value).
