Perhaps the simplest way without having to modify the OLSRd code is to
create a network device (netdev) on top the USB interface.
Have a look at the "usbnet" driver, http://www.linux-usb.org/usbnet/
In the past, I had ran OLSR on PPP-over-RS232 by creating a PPP network
interface over the RS-232 serial device. (don't expect the speed to be
