Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+ The syncppp drivers in Linux provide a fairly complete
+ implementation of Cisco HDLC and a minimal implementation of
+ PPP. The longer term goal is to switch the PPP layer to the
+ generic PPP interface that is new in Linux 2.3.x. The API should
+ remain unchanged when this is done, but support will then be
+ available for IPX, compression and other PPP features
