Just FYI, I recall that there may be something similar for the router LSA.
It *seemed* that after a reboot one can receive your own router LSA before
you have generated your first router LSA after the reboot. In this case one
does not remember the seq. num for the incoming router LSA so the first router
LSA will start with initial seq. number.
See ospf_process_self_originated_lsa() for details.
