[OLSR-users] willingness vs. LQ routing

Hi Stefan,

Currently the willingness is not considered when creating the routing 
table or when selecting MPRs when LQ extensions are enabled. But, as you 
say, it probably makes sense to include the willingness in the link 
quality determined by a node. The lower the willingness, the worse the 
announced link quality for each link in the direction from the neighbour 
to the node should be.

This would then affect the ETX and hence the routing table as well as 
MPR selection. Strictly speaking, we would not need the willingness 
anymore, as a node's willingness is reflected by the announced link 

Thanks for your suggestion. I did not think of it before and I agree 
that implementing something like this makes sense. However, I'd like to 
postpone this to a later version. Let's first get the LQ code free of 
bugs in its current form.
