tipc: Prevent access of non-existent field in short message header

This patch eliminates a case where TIPC's link code could try reading
a field that is not present in a short message header.  (The random
value obtained was not being used, but the read operation could result
in an invalid memory access exception in extremely rare circumstances.)
