    tipc: split up function tipc_msg_eval() · e3a77561
    Jon Paul Maloy authored
    The function tipc_msg_eval() is in reality doing two related, but
    different tasks. First it tries to find a new destination for named
    messages, in case there was no first lookup, or if the first lookup
    failed. Second, it does what its name suggests, evaluating the validity
    of the message and its destination, and returning an appropriate error
    code depending on the result.
    This is confusing, and in this commit we choose to break it up into two
    functions. A new function, tipc_msg_lookup_dest(), first attempts to find
    a new destination, if the message is of the right type. If this lookup
    fails, or if the message should not be subject to a second lookup, the
    already existing tipc_msg_reverse() is called. This function performs
    prepares the message for rejection, if applicable.
