[Olsr-dev] OLSR IPs for node with multiple interfaces

I would agree with this. If you have two radios, you will want to use 
frequencies that are as far apart as possible. Also, I currently use 
OLSR with dual radios and all my interfaces are assigned IP addresses 
of 10.x.x.x/8. OLSR and Linux both seem happy with this.

I noticed that Markus Kittenberger (in a previous post) was talking 
about their mesh in Vienna using or /32 subnet masks. 
However, I did not understand the reasoning. If you have the time, I 
would be very interested in hearing why you do this.
