I misread the code, the device it looks at in tcf_mirred_init is
the target device (ifb). So what it does is check whether the
target device wants a link layer header and if it does restores
the one from the source device. So currently it seems impossible
to get rid of the PPP(oE) header.

Jamal, is that how its supposed to work?
