Andrzej's altqstat(1) shows ALTQ fails to dequeue packets from pppoe0
even when packets are in the queue.
It seems to me that sppp_dequeue() returns NULL, and the only
condition I found in the code path is

	  (sppp_ncp_check(sp) || (sp->pp_flags & PP_CISCO) != 0)

I don't have PPPoE and can't test it by myself.
