so we have this big discussion about a (trivial) patch that makes the
olsrd binary hash different and this makes a pain for olsrd developers
give proper support on the OpenWRT platform

because we are now all at the battlemesh in person, what about find a
solution for this ?


why is not possible to remove the patch and have olsrd change the
ip_forwarding setting ? thanks !
