If you control the gateways the gateway should detect the uplink failure and
stop announcing themselves as gateway. That is how most people are doing it.
in cases of gateway-router instabilites (short brownouts / blackouts )
which we have alot with thunderstorms, it would be helpful if some
other control instance could block the gateway to be used inside the
batman-adv routing aside from the gateway anouncing itself.
If you don't control the gateways or wish to solve this on the
batman-adv module would need to get extended to influence the selected gateway
from user space.
Is there any idea how to implement some kind of 'control instance'
for the batman-adv routing ?
That also would help to achive some dynamic routing to gateways by
adjusting the qualtiy of those in respect L3 parameters.
