If I was to fix it, I think one way to do it would be aggregating an interface
to each of the netdevices. Such interface would have a method to retrieve
other netdevices attached to that netdevice. Then we need a "L2 bridge"
interface in Node, which would have a method enumerating other netdevices
connected to the same "bridge" as a certain netdevice of the node. With these
two interfaces the GlobalRoutingManager would be able to recursively follow all
possible L2 paths from a given netdevice and discover all remote L2 devices,
even multihop ones.
