From: Allan Stephens <allan.stephens@windriver.com>

Enhances command validation done by TIPC's configuration service so
that it works properly even if the node's network address is changed in
mid-operation. The default node address of <0.0.0> is now recognized as an
alias for "this node" even after a new network address has been assigned.
