You don't have to use a buffer of fixed size when pushing data
on the net buffers. The net buffer functions takes a pointer to a
olsr_u8_t and the size of the buffer as parameter - so in reallity
you can build your packet in any way you like as long as it it
"serialized" in memory when passed to the net buffer functions.
