Why is this kind of translation necessary:

abuf_json_float(abuf, "linkCost", 
atof(get_linkcost_text(my_link->linkcost, false, &lqbuffer2)));

You first convert the raw linkcost into text, then into float, then into 
text. Why not skip two conversions?

It might even be a good idea to add another field "rawLinkCost", which 
just includes the 32 bit unsigned integer. That is more easy to parse 
for a program.

What do you think ?
