Well, I think we have a more fundamental problem here. By adding
L2TPoUDP sessions to the global list, we allow cross-talks with L2TPoIP
sessions. That is, if we have an L2TPv3 session X running over UDP and
we receive an L2TP_IP packet targetted at session ID X, then
l2tp_session_get() will return the L2TP_UDP session to l2tp_ip_recv().

I guess l2tp_session_get() should be dropped and l2tp_ip_recv() should
look up the session in the context of its socket, like in the UDP case.

But for the moment, what about just not adding L2TP_UDP sessions to the
global list? That should fix both your problem and the L2TP_UDP/L2TP_IP
cross-talks.
