Feel free to fix ppp in a similar way to the other change. It is likely a
header inclusion
order change.

I'm just doing the kernel header changes, I can't always detangle the user
space issues,
that's where others need to step in and help.

There's no issue in carrying it, since it isn't like we are developing
software that will
be incompatible through the change, or that will have ABI issues.
