You can register a pointer that is passed to the scheduled function. This
is the second parameter to the olsr_register_scheduler_event function.
Once upon a time this was probably usefull - but I can't remember wat case
this was used in right now :) Because of this the function to be
registered with the scheduler must be of the type void
(*event_function)(void *). So if you do not use the parameter you should
still decalre it in the funtion declaration(even though you might get away
with not doing so).

Remember that to get any printout from olsr_event has_apm need to be !0
and also remember that the first printouts are using a debuglevel of 3 so
they will not be displayed if olsrd is running with a debuglevel < 3.
