David doesn't want the new PPP, insisting that I fix existing
hdlc_ppp.c + syncppp.c combo instead, and that there are related bugs
in drivers using syncppp.c alone (not hdlc_ppp) which I have to fix as

Unfortunately I'm unable to do that. Even if I could add another
workaround to hdlc_ppp to make it work with syncppp.c again, I can't
fix the other drivers (if they are indeed broken) because of lack of
hardware, and I can't really make significant changes to syncppp.c
(to make them available to all drivers) because that could and would
break those drivers.
