This document extends the Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE)
with an optional credit-based flow control mechanism and
an optional Link Quality Metric report.  These optional extensions
improve the performance of PPPoE over media with variable bandwidth
and limited buffering, such as mobile point-to-point radio links.
