As more nodes on the network use timestamp_filter to block gossip
floods, we've seen some propagation problems. This should avoid it
(and is implemented now by c-lightning).

Nodes can use `timestamp_filter` to reduce their gossip load when they
have many peers (eg. setting `first_timestamp` to 0xFFFFFFFF after the
first few peers, in the assumption that propagation is adaquate).
This assumption of adaquate propagation does not apply for gossip messages
