[ndnSIM] How to manually set LinkType

Hi Ashiq,

If you are only using "ad hoc" face in your simulations, there are two 
possible ways:

In NFD configuration file, one is able to make all UDP multicast faces 
"ad hoc"
(configuration line: 
Thus, if the version of ndnSIM has ndn-cxx and nfd that support "ad hoc" 
face, you
can modify the configuration file that NFD is loading.

An alternative is to directly modify NFD. The difference between "ad 
hoc" face and other faces
in the current implementation is whether to allow Interest/Data sent to 
its incoming face.
Thus, you can delete the check in the forwarder
and do not check it in your forwarding strategy. Afterwards, face 
becomes "ad hoc".
