[Olsr-dev] Bug in nameservice plugin - When OLSR started with interfaces down main addr is not later updated on ifup

If you launch OLSR with the interface(s) down the nameservice plugin
is loaded but main addr is unknown.

when later the interface goes up, the routing daemon detects the
interface and sets the new main addr to talk to OLSR protocol, but the
plugin status is not updated. You will have nameservice packets
without the HOST field in the packet.

I can try to provide a patch, but how to trigger a event into the
plugin when the interface goes up ?? There is some way to register a
function to that event ?
