So this would mean that if local_nid is configured to be the bcast
address then rather than rejecting messages to non-control ports we will
broadcast them.

What happens when some other node in the network replies? Wouldn't it be
better to explicitly prohibit usage of the bcast address as our node
address?


That said, in torvalds/master qrtr_local_nid is no longer initialized to
QRTR_NODE_BCAST, but 1. So I don't think you need this patch anymore.
