npppd and pipex don't support multilink PPP.   "MP" in ppp.h have been
drived from RFC 3145.

Yes, npppd supports server-side only.  For client-side ppp, we already
have pppd(8).  Pppd need a process by a ppp connection, but I think it
is not a problem for client-side for most cases.  Pppd itself doesn't
have in-kernel framing for PPTP, PPPoE or L2TP.  But we can add it by
adding pipex ioctl hooks to pppd(8) and pipex hooks to ppp(4).
