Can you please provide example of PPP link configuration, that was
broken by r233773.

Okay, here it is more verbose:
My list of interfaces:
# ifconfig -l
em0 wlan0 iwn0 lo0
My only configured interface:
# ifconfig em0
em0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
inet x.x.x.111 netmask 0xffffffe0 broadcast x.x.x.127
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
My arp table:
# arp -an
? (x.x.x.97) at 00:00:5e:00:01:61 on em0 expires in 1198 seconds [ethernet]
? (x.x.x.101) at 00:e0:81:5a:22:49 on em0 expires in 618 seconds [ethernet]
? (x.x.x.111) at f0:de:f1:6c:5b:fa on em0 permanent [ethernet]
? (x.x.x.116) at 00:26:18:6a:ea:02 on em0 expires in 1128 seconds [ethernet]
Now I'm trying to set ARP entry for network address. And I get error:
# arp -s 184.108.40.206 0:0:0:0:0:0
set: proxy entry exists for non 802 device
Questions: where is the "proxy entry" mentioned in the above ARP table? I don't
see one. Where is the "non 802 device" in the above list of my interfaces?

I have mailed you 8 March 2012 with msg-id <20120308173642.GW13644 at glebius.int.ru>,
and didn't got any reply since. That's why I proceeded with commit.
P.S. And please, can you avoid top quoting when discussing on technical FreeBSD
lists? This isn't my personal wish but explicitly documented etiquette:
Totus tuus, Glebius.
