Subjectppp0 out of control
Hi there,

I am running 2.6.10 from on Debian Sid ppc/x86, the same
issue occurs with 2.6.9. Though, and previous are fine.

When my ISP connection via PPPoE (kernel side) goes down, reconnection
does not occur, and the kernel displays continuous:

kernel: unregister_netdevice: waiting for ppp0 to become free. Usage count = 1

This is that on both machine: x86 and ppc.

The only solution is a reboot, because pppd is not killable, and the
kernel keeps on with this message.

Does anyone have a solution? I am completely clueless. :( I thought
about stalled sockets, but how can I destroy them?

What is blocking ppp0?

What system outputs do you need to solve this?
