further the ETX is the same in both OLSR and DSR.

what differs greatly is the linkquality definition/implementation.
this part is not properly implemented in OLSR at the moment, in fact
the current implementation can only be explained by "voodoo-magic" but
not on the grounds of rational thought.

i already worked on a patch, but never found time for testing it properly
or to bring this topic to this ML.
