Ok, but what we have in the tree should at least not be a crashing
mess that has to be marked BROKEN meanwhile :-)

This patch should address that issue.

Longer term I hope someone works on the infrastructure necessary that
would allow us to delete this and use generic PPP kernel+userspace
over these links.

Scanning over some of these older WAN drivers was truly scary. No
locking at all over the HDLC protocol list, yikes!

syncppp: Fix crashes.

The syncppp layer wants a mid-level netdev private pointer.

It was using netdev->priv but that only worked by accident,
and thus this scheme was broken when the device private
allocation strategy changed.

Add a proper mid-layer private pointer for uses like this,
update syncppp and all users, and remove the HDLC_PPP broken
tag from drivers/net/wan/Kconfig

Generic HDLC driver supporting PPP over WAN connections.
- This module is currently broken and will cause a kernel panic
- when a device configured in PPP mode is activated.

It will be replaced by new PPP implementation in Linux 2.6.26.
