tipc: Handle broadcast attempt when no neighboring nodes exist
Allan Stephens [Mon, 24 Oct 2011 17:05:55 +0000 (13:05 -0400)]
Adds a check to detect when an attempt is made to send a message
via the broadcast link and no neighboring nodes are currently available
to receive it. Rather than wasting effort passing the message to the
broadcast link and broadcast bearer, who will only throw it away,
TIPC now frees the message immediately and reports success (i.e. the
message has been delivered to all available destinations).
