Neither does Babel, and Babel did apparently not have this issue.

Babel dumps routes in the kernel by specifying:

  - dest, plen;
  - gateway;
  - interface.

I suspect the main difference with OLSR is that it specifies the onlink
flag, asking the kernel not to apply any smarts to the route.  Is that

What if IP addresses change at runtime?
