So I can still reproduce this on nodes that only have one network
interface and are the only things connected.

I did find one thing that helps

diff --git a/net/tipc/discover.c b/net/tipc/discover.c
index c138d68e8a69..49921dad404a 100644
--- a/net/tipc/discover.c
+++ b/net/tipc/discover.c
@@ -358,10 +358,10 @@ int tipc_disc_create(struct net *net, struct
tipc_bearer *b,
        tipc_disc_init_msg(net, d->skb, DSC_REQ_MSG, b);
 
        /* Do we need an address trial period first ? */
-       if (!tipc_own_addr(net)) {
+//     if (!tipc_own_addr(net)) {
                tn->addr_trial_end = jiffies + msecs_to_jiffies(1000);
                msg_set_type(buf_msg(d->skb), DSC_TRIAL_MSG);
-       }
+//     }
        memcpy(&d->dest, dest, sizeof(*dest));
        d->net = net;
        d->bearer_id = b->identity;

I think because with pre-configured addresses the duplicate address
detection is skipped the shorter init phase is skipped. Would is make
sense to unconditionally do the trial step? Or is there some better way
to get things to transition with pre-assigned addresses.
