This would prevent olsrd using a link during the first "hello-interval
* x" seconds. That's not good.

What's about this ? It's not as "fast" as the old formula, but I think it works:

lq = (total - lost) * / (  (total + olsr_cnf->lq_wsize) / 2 );

(just using the average of the maximum lq window size and the active one)

This way fresh links can be used immediately, but get "bad" lq values
until olsrd receives enough hellos.
