tipc: Enhance sending of discovery object link request messages

Augments TIPC's discovery object to send its initial neighbor discovery
request message as soon as the associated bearer is created, rather than
waiting for its first periodic timeout to occur, thereby speeding up the
discovery process. Also adds a check to suppress the initial request or
subsequent requests if the bearer is blocked at the time the request is
scheduled for transmission.
