    I was, until I got Bluetooth DSL access point :).

    I used to have PPPoE setup with Speedtouch modem on my Dual Athlon box. It was running
    2.4.18 at that time. Most of the SMP problems were in the ATM code. I fixed some of them
    and my patches went into 2.4.19. I did some hack to the driver itself but those
    were minor.
