OK.  I guess this should be cleaned up at some point, but my goals are more
modest at the moment: simply to eliminate the brain-damaged code that says
"struct ospf *ospf = ospf;".

One example is in lookup_opaque_info_by_type where it says:

      top = ospf_lookup ();
      if ((area = lsa->area) != NULL && (top = area->ospf) == NULL)
          zlog_warn ("Type-11 Opaque-LSA: Reference to OSPF is missing?");
