[olsr-dev] DynGW-Plain

the normal dyngw plugin has a lot of disadvantages. It will need libthread 
and the ping test normally only works if a default route is present. But: 
the normal default route will disturb the routing through the box to other 
HNA inet gws. To overcome this, you need to add a "policy routing" default 
route with iproute2 in order to bring the normal dyngw ping test into live.

For this reason, I'll use a very plain version of dyngw with my next 
freifunk-firmware release. Default-Route (without policy rule) will *always* 
announce HNA4. I'll use a cron job/daemon script to switch the standard 
default route on or off.

If someone is interested, you may have a look at my olsrd hacks available
