#873 new enhancement

automatically create an interface instance for every configuration file

Create a net_device for each interface configuration file. Every PPP interface behaves like an ethernet interface, so userland apps don't need the PPP API for simple tasks like querying, connecting, and disconnecting. This makes pppconfig superfluous because ifconfig can handle all important tasks (and it could be enhanced, so you only have one tool for all those advanced functions).
