Finally, I think I'll keep this approach for net-next, to completely
remove PPPOX_ZOMBIE.
For now, let's just avoid any assumption about the relationship between
the PPPOX_ZOMBIE state and the value of po->pppoe_dev, as suggested by
Matt.

Denys, can you let me know if your issue goes away with the following
patch?
