and much faster as olsrd could ever do,.. (adhoc (or any wifi without
powersave) needs several hundred mW)

on modern smartphone cpus olsrd cpuload is nearly ignoreable low. afair it
uses ~ 1mhz of arm cortex a8/a9 in a 500 nodes mesh
(this results in just several mW more)

if u have low tx power (<5db) even forwarding other users traffic does not
really increase your power consumption,..

but of course no suspend to ram while meshing,..
but also not while connected to an wifi AP as a client, ..
