I understand. There is a known restriction with Quagga and 1-hop host routes 
which needs to be fixed. See https://lists.olsr.org/pipermail/olsr-users/2011-
May/004713.html .

I have pushed some patches to git://git.acinonyx.ath.cx/olsrd-quagga.git 
(branch: olsrd-0.6.x) which hopefully fix this issue. You can give them a try 
and report back. If they work, I will push them upstream to olsrd git.
Also, Smart gateway feature cannot be used together with quagga plugin because 
it messes with different routing tables and rules which Quagga does not

Yes, it should be stable for both IPv4 and IPv6 in latest stable olsrd

This is the most updated documentation. It may need some trivia updates, but 
plugin parameters and sample config are correct.
> is anyone successfully running OLSR with Quagga BGP ? 
We've been running it in AWMN for years. But we are using point to point links 
and OLSR with subnet and not host routes.

> What version of Quagga would you suggest ?
I would suggest the latest version of Quagga - 0.99.18
