The originator IP is the main address of the router, OLSRd always build up a 
route to this node. At the moment there is no configuration settings to 
prevent this, the OLSR protocol does not even have a field to signal a "non-
routable" originator. OLSRv2 has this field, but the OLSRv2 code for OLSRd is 
still incomplete.
