i have to repeat it, because nearly nobody understood this:

*no protocol* except olsr1/olsr2 sets the TOS/DSCP-Field.
Even this is *not enough* if we dont have a network-queue/class which
knows of DiffServ - so we have at least to 'TC' manually it.

a starting point is here:

this means: we must have some network-prio for protocol traffic when
the we have sort of congestion. this happens all the time 8-)
