Subject: [PATCH net-next 09/10] tipc: use node_list_lock to protect tipc_num_nodes variable

As tipc_node_list is protected by rcu read lock on read side, it's
unnecessary to hold node_list_lock to protect tipc_node_list in
tipc_node_get_links(). Instead, node_list_lock should just protects
tipc_num_nodes in the function.
