[Olsr-dev] MID optimization

i have some concerns about your patch:


we should not fix things on the receiver side
by faking up protocol state. - questions that come to mind:

- what happens if the neighbor has different sequence spaces for
  MID vs. TCs (then you may prevent the MIDs getting learned)

- what happens if the TC interval is lower than the MID interval ?
  (then your faked up MID will time out anyway )

IMO the more correct thing to do is to fix the send side of things.
i.e. if an (non main IP address) of a node changes then immediatly
generate and flood a MID entry. please back out htis fix and
fix it on the sender side in the interface code.
