tipc_conn_send_work makes a call to connected() which just returns con
&& test_bit(CF_CONNECTED, &con->flags)
maybe we can add this check to the implementation of connection() if
you agree, but I found this solution to be fairly simpler because I'm
not sure where else connected() is being used, and I did not want to
introduce redundant function calls.

Yes we can replace con->server with the local variable srv. Extremely
sorry, I hadn't noticed it earlier.

please let me know if i've wrongly understood any of these.
thanks,

karthik
