If the received LSA has MAX Age, it signifies that the LSA in the
Database has to be flushed. The Router which had originated the
LSA previously floods the same LSA with MAX Age if the LSA is
timedout due to Normal LSA Aging or Premature Aging. So LSA
received with MAX Age should be the recent LSA.
