I have tried using the timer/select method with bmf and the multicast 
performance was very poor w/high data rates.
I ended up using a mutex in the main olsr processing loop and any other 
thread(s) that might be created.
Also the main olsr thread is set with a high "real-time" priority vs 
other threads.
