I don't get how that would help in the scenario where I'm seeing the
bug: what happens in my setup is that I'm creating the pppoe device
once, when the system is coming up. At that time, sppp_lcp_init()
is also called.
However, it is not called again when the connection is brought up or down. 

So making sppp_lcp_init() do more work would have no effect at all
because it simply isn't run again.
