Any suggestions are welcome. And double-checking the patch, I already have some
changes to put in version 3.

Why do you need to synchronize it with drivers/net/slip/slip.c
implementation ?

I totally agree with you. I would have already dropped it if this patch
didn't make sense. But since I seem to have understood that this is
not the case, I do not understand why it cannot be improved in this
series.

The cover letter highlighted positive reactions to the series because
the module had been requiring these kinds of changes for quite
some time. So, why not take the opportunity to finalize this patch in
this series even if it doesn't extend the supported features ?

Anyway, I have some changes and tests to run before submitting version 3.
If I don't get any hints before then, I'll drop it from the series.

Thanks and regards,
Dario
