Here is yet another OpenWRT-related change for babeld: I just merged procd
support for babeld [2], after more than two years of lingering [1].

The only user-visible changes should be:

- babeld now logs to the system log (visible with "logread") instead of a
  file in /var/log.  This is nice for embedded devices, where you don't
  want to write too much to the filesystem.  It is still possible to
  explicitly configure babeld to use a log file;

- babeld is now restarted automatically whenever it crashes;

- the usual procd niceties: calling "/etc/init.d/babeld reload" will
  restart babeld only if the configuration has changed.

Please test babeld 1.8.0-2 and report any resulting breakage.  I would
like this change (and the other compatibility change) to make it into the
upcoming LEDE release, which is due to happen quite soon.
