pppoe, fix old protocol handler

I'm using 2.5(.73-mm3, but this also applies to earlier versions) and
I'm getting tons (~6000/min) of "fix old protocol handler <pppoed>!" in
my syslog on a quite loaded adsl line. For the time being I just
commented out the annoying code fragment and I didn't find any
regressions yet (uptime ~20days).
So what's the correct way of getting rid of this message? I tried
recompiling pppd and pppoe, but that doesn't solve it. Is there a
patched version somewhere.



pppd version 2.4.2b3
Roaring Penguin PPPoE Version 3.5
