Hi Daniel,

If you want a function called when data is available on a socket you
should register your callback function and your socket with the socket
parser using the add_olsr_socket call.
To answer your second question, yes the callback function can loop
trough interfaces and generate a message(s) that are pushed onto
the olsrd net buffers.

So all in all you only need the socket parser callback function and
no scheduler registered function.
