I'm late getting into this conversation. Gmail thought the original patches were 
spam.

First of all, we need to change the behavior as the original code is wrong; 
however, the code involves PPPoE, which I have never used, and never tested. I 
still need to check the correct endian values for one of the packet types. I 
hate reading IEEE official documents!!!!

I should have a review of the patches later today.
