Yes, maybe.

Yes. The interval should depend on the type of interface... a local
ethernet link doesn't need to be probed that often as an internet
connection or maybe even a special wireless bridge.

In the OpenWRT makefile of Olsrd2 you find a line that sets the cmake
variable OONF_CUSTOM_STATIC_PLUGINS, it contains the list of plugins
you want.

I would suggest adding "link_config" and "layer2_viewer" to the
list... and maybe removing "eth_listener".
