Yes, it does. The old PPP stack is in need to be ported to our current network API, which patch in #812 is doing, or trying to do (I didn't have time to check it yet). This ticket is about supporting dialup device, on which most of the time PPP stack is then bound.
I've just update status to its current value, as I'm not currently working on it, as this status could have one think I was. Nothing more.
I did start to work on it a couple of years ago, but at this time the TTY layer was not stable enough to continue. I know that since some usb_serial issues were fixed or worked-around, so maybe the work can be resumed, though.

|Milestone:||R1 → Unscheduled|
Moving PPP related tickets out of R1 milestone (Prop #2).
By the way, some weeks ago in #812 was massive PPP-related contribution - does it related to this task?
