Subject: interface counters overflow (ppp)

Is there any plans to convert ppp counters to 64-bit values?
Sure backward compatible way. (new ioctl call?)

Current speeds on modern interfaces, even on 1Mbit DSL modem (PPPoE 
connection) will overflow pppd counters just in ~10 hours.

Current pppd implementation using SIOCGPPPSTATS ioctl, where is all fields 
related to byte counting is 32-bit.
