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

Ensure that TIPC does not re-establish communication with a
neighboring node until it has finished updating all data structures
containing information about that node to reflect the earlier loss of
contact.  Previously, it was possible for TIPC to perform its purge of
name table entries relating to the node once contact had already been
re-established, resulting in the unwanted removal of valid name table
entries.
