Subject: Re: [PATCH net] drivers/net/wan/hdlc_cisco: Add hard_header_len

Hello Xie,

BTW it's 4 bytes long:

struct hdlc_header {
        u8 address;
        u8 control;
        __be16 protocol;
}__packed;

OTOH hdlc_setup_dev() initializes hard_header_len to 16,
but in this case I guess 4 bytes are better.
