I think this is what I want to do.
So now I took olsr_calculate_routing_table() from olsr_spf.c. But
there ist this spf_backoff_timer preventing the algorithm to run. I
cannot stop or remove this timer because it is not in global scope.
Do you know a way to trigger dijkstra from a plugin or do I need to
make changes there to make sure I can acces this timer?

I need to add a new route as well, so removing an old one is only half the job.

This would only help for the new accesspoint but not for the old one,
which needs updated routes as well.
