Patch Submission: Enable 'poff' to properly end a 'pppd' process when arguments were passed to 'pppd'

The patch (with context) is attached to this email, and it will allow
/usr/bin/poff to properly end a /usr/sbin/pppd process that was
started with additional arguments.

The patch (without context) is found below (see line 93 of /usr/bin/poff):
-PID=`ps axw | grep "[ /]pppd call $1 *\$" | awk '{print $1}'`
+PID=`ps axw | grep "[ /]pppd call $1" | awk '{print $1}'`

The problem with the current poff script is on line 93 where the
output of `ps axw` is piped into grep. The current regular expression
that grep searches for prevents the PID of the specified pppd process
from being found, which results in the script failing to terminate the
pppd process. The output of poff in that case would be the following:

/usr/bin/poff: I could not find a pppd process for provider 'cit-vpn'.
None stopped.

The reason for this is that the " *\$" at the end of the regular
expression does not match the output of the following example from `ps
axw`:

11846 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/sbin/pppd call cit-vpn updetach persist

To resolve this issue, I removed the troublesome part of the regular
expression (" *\$") and now grep can properly match the example output
provided above.

I have tested this using ppp 2.4.5-2 in conjunction with
pptpclient-1.7.2-3 on Arch Linux x86_64.

Multilink PPPoE - Header corruption


Searching the archives, I see that this list has been relatively quiet as 
of late - probably because the PPP systems are considered stable and "just 
work"... However I've hit an interesting issue that I can't find any 
solution to..

I have a Linux based router - nothing fancy, however it has 8 Intel 
Ethernet ports - 4 x Gb, 4 x 10/100. It's running Debian, with a custom 
compiled 2.6.35.13 kernel tailored to the hardware. (Although I've just 
now tried 3.0.4 with the same issues)

(using that 2.6.35 kernel as it's the latest flagged for long-term support 
and I'm using it elsewhere in routers/servers, etc. I'm not averse to 
trying a different kernel though - especially if someone can say "Oh look, 
a regression, try this" or something)

Anyway, one of the 10/100 Ethernet ports is running PPPoE to a Vigor 120 
modem acting as a PPPoE <> PPPoA bridge to the ISP. This is working fine 
and is something I've done several times in the past.

Another 2 ports connect in a similar manner via a pair of Vigor 120's to a 
different ISP who is providing a bonded service.

I can bring each of these lines up individually and pass data over them 
without any issues. I can bring them both up, and I see the links bundled 
together in the log messages, however then the fun begins... I can ping 
the far end (and remote hosts in-general), but I can't transfer any data. 
In particular what appears to be happening is that the first SYN packet 
that leaves the router is corrupted, or the SYN+ACK packet is response to 
a remote connection is similarly corrupted.
