And by pppoe(4). But I don't think it is exported in a way it can be
used for PPPoA other than by pppoe(4).

got hardware or software which could be used to test such a driver?
Bringing my DSL down for that purpose is not an option unfortunately
because my wife always complains when Internet access doesn't work. :-}
