[Olsr-dev] drop routes with default-gw

I came across the idea of dropping the scope link route for the whole
subnet on the wireless interface and then add the defaut route and only
these routes, which differ from the default-gateway.

If the router itself announces a default gateway, this shouldn't be
done, so that Packets to IPs, which can't be reached don't loop or go
through the internet connection.

Any comments?

I think this is a good method to keep the routes in the kernel low and
the windows-machines will also like it ;-)
