[Olsr-dev] best-originator

olsr needs to figure out if several routers in the olsr network
do announce a certain prefix and if so determine the closest
(= best). in your example only the olsr router with id
was announcing a prefix and since there have not been any
redundant advertisements this is considered the best announcement which
will ultimately get installed in the kernel.
