Do you have "ppp" compiled as a module?  There is a problem
with exception handling for modules ... I'm working on a
patch now.

We've got a report of ppp not working; what happens is that it
puts in the log:
    Couldn't get channel number: bad address

when it sends the PPPIOCGCHAN ioctl.

However, if we replace the calls to put_user for
PPPIOCGCHAN & PPPIOCGFLAGS ioctls with copy_to_user,
it works fine. Shouldn't this not make any difference?
