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

Prevent a TIPC node from sending out a LINK_STATE message
advertising a broadcast message that it is in the process
of sending, but has not yet actually sent.  Previously, it was
possible for a link timeout to occur in between the time the
broadcast link updated its "last message sent" counter and the
time the broadcast message was passed to the broadcast bearer
for transmission.  This ensures that the code which issues
the LINK_STATE message isn't informed of the new message until
the broadcast bearer has had a chance to send it.

Note: The "last message sent" value is stored in the "fsm_msg_count"
field of the link structure used by the broadcast link.  Since the
broadcast link doesn't utilize the normal link FSM, this field can
be re-used rather than adding a new field to the broadcast link.
