[Olsr-dev] Improving SPF with binary heaps

In fact there are several possible topology combinations that lead nodes to
have the same
priority at a given instant of the SPF computation. Below it is illustrated
a scenario where
nodes have the same priority even with all link having different ETX.
The source S is extracted first because has priority zero. THen D and A
have priorities 3 and 2, respectivelly. Then A is extracted and C is
inserted in the queue with the same priority of D.
Then, the priority queue running in S will be O(n) instead of O(log n).

 S is the source, has priority zero. Then, A has highest priority and is
 S------3------D (priority=3)
     C (priority=3)
