[Olsr-dev] Idea for small OLSR improvement

Mitar better fixes his madwifi setup. The first 3 letters of the driver name 
says it all. Try "wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode adhoc 

[ provided that he has the patchset from openwrt/kamikaze together with the 
new HAL in place. Verify HAL with "dmesg" after the "insmod ath_pci". That 
really should read "Atheros HAL provided by OpenWrt, DD-WRT and MakSat 
Technologies". Otherwise it's best to throw away router & buy another one 
with a working wifi driver ]

Dead link - remove route after timeout. That's simple enough and should 
really stay that way.
