#ifndef _PPP_CHANNEL_H_

#define _PPP_CHANNEL_H_
 * Definitions for the interface between the generic PPP code
 * and a PPP channel.
 * A PPP channel provides a way for the generic PPP code to send
 * and receive packets over some sort of communications medium.
 * Packets are stored in sk_buffs and have the 2-byte PPP protocol
 * number at the start, but not the address and control bytes.

extern char *ppp_dev_name(struct ppp_channel *);

 * SMP locking notes:
 * The channel code must ensure that when it calls ppp_unregister_channel,
 * nothing is executing in any of the procedures above, for that
 * channel.  The generic layer will ensure that nothing is executing
 * in the start_xmit and ioctl routines for the channel by the time
 * that ppp_unregister_channel returns.
