Since nobody seems to have replied yet, I'll give it a shot, although
I'm by no means a specialist.
So-called ``reactive'' routing protocols, such as DSR and AODV, are
a pretty smart idea for some kinds of networks.
Unfortunately, they cannot be implemented using the normal ``routing
table'' paradigm -- they require reactive interactions between the
kernel and the routing daemon. Rather then designing a mechanism for
such interactions, the authors of such routing protocols have been
putting their whole implementation in the kernel, which ties their
software to a single version of the kernel.
You're not likely to find any reactive routing protocol implementation
that works with a recent kernel.
