The problem with source-IP and IPv6 is that you cannot set the source IP of a 
packet in the route on the source node. IPv6 does not allow this.

I think the best way in the future might be to configure ALL olsr interfaces 
with the same net-global IP (the OLSR main IP) and use the linklocal IPs for 
connecting the neighbor nodes. This should work, but it needs more testing.
