Ok, this will be the fact i need for decision... for now. Because RP seems to
be the only one to fix the MSS problem. I also don't like the yellow-feetet
thing too much, but if this works, it's a temporary solution. How about MSS
rewriting in this kernel pppoe stuff? I don't think this is implemented there,
as i didn't see anything lokking as this.
