I'll take that on early August when I get back from vacation.  I'll need
to set up to repeat the test case and probably want to also try it out
on a couple of other processors I have available (an ARM11 MX31 and an
x86 Atom as well as the PPC405).  And of course, upgrade the version

Buildroot doesn't have the freeradius client in it, so I'll probably
have to add that as well.

Hmm we might keep rp-pppoe for server-side functionality.
Do you feel like migrating the package to the latest infrastructure and
updating to the latest version?
