[mediawiki/extensions/Translate@master] Fix incorrect link to the message on translate editor

Fixes the incorrect link on Link to this message on the translate editor. Note that linking to a specific messages displays only that message on the message table.

Added code in the message table module to update the targetlangcode data attribute of the message table whenever the target language is updated using the ULS.
