Thanks for reviewing, I'll send a v4.

Right (though it's called session_fd above), I have added explicit input

Yes, I kept the simple l2tp-to-l2tp example, but mentioned that other
types of ppp channels can also be bridged. The important part is that
the code snippets show exactly what kind of fd is expected where :)
