Hi Will

I am sure an upgrade of the eCos lwIP stack to the latest stable
upstream release would be welcomed by many eCos users.

The lwIP PPP code currently checked-in to the eCos repository was
contributed by Simon Kallweit. This would explain the substantial
PPP-related changes in your code comparison. It was always the intention
to migrate to the official lwIP PPP sources over time. Ref:

As with all imports, it is important to minimise changes to the upstream
code as far as possible. That way, future imports become much easier.
