The Hello message of the OLSR protocol go only one-hop.

A default multicast (without any protocol support) only goes one hop too.

Even a broadcast goes only one hip.

For this, we need the devices to be able to send local broadcasts that will only reach their 1-hop-neighbors and will not be forwarded. I guess we need to implement a custom message type, but the documentation on how to do this exactly is kind of... Sparse.
