Subject: [PATCH v3] tipc: initialise addr_trail_end when setting node addresses

We set the field 'addr_trial_end' to 'jiffies', instead of the current
value 0, at the moment the node address is initialized. This guarantees
we don't inadvertently enter an address trial period when the node
address is explicitly set by the user.

Acked-by: Jon Maloy <>

    Changes in v3:
    - Reword commit message as suggested
    - Include acl from Jon
    Changes in v2:
    - move setting to tipc_set_node_addr() as suggested
    - reword commit message
