not really, when we started olsr-ng, thomas lopatic left us a
threaded AVL implementation which we have used since then.

please find the results of a valgrind profiling run at 

  (use the kcachegrind KDE application to visualize).

  as you may see about 20% of CPU time is spent doing
  AVL tree operations (lookup/inserteion/deletion).

if you have an idea how to further improve this,
you are welcome to contribute code :-).
