[olsr-dev] Messages per OLSR packet

Hi,

olsrd 0.4.7 will stack forwarded messages while generated messages will 
be sent one per olsr packet. This is not a RFC incompliance IMO, the RFC 
says that packets can be stacked(as they will be due to the forward 
jitter) but not that they _must_ be.

However - in 0.4.8 generated non-HELLO packages will also be cached for 
a very short time thus allowing for generated messages to be stacked as 
well. The forward and generation buffers are no longer two separate 
buffers so that all outgoing/forwarded messages might be stacked.
