Thanks for the information, but our problem is to create a routing table to
deal with broken edges in MANET, by storing a metric based on shortest
path, so that when a relay edge is missing, we can consider alternate path
instead of broadcasting data packets. We are planning to add a hop-count
tag in the interest packet to determine the best path back to the consumer,
when an edge is missing.

Since our faces are adhoc, which are naturally broadcast, we are planning
to add an extra "mac-address-tag" to data packets so that not all nodes
receiving the data will resend it.

Regular FIB is not enough as of now, but our concern is whether we can use
the existing RIB table for this purpose.
