No it isn't. kern/69133 is about the interface or netgraph not seeing
the data packets if autonegotiation on the xl(4) interface is enabled
(default setting), this is about user-ppp not getting the proper
netgraph node type and aborting before even trying to communicate.

No, the problem in kern/69133 has apparently persisted, but I worked
around it by forcing the xl1 interface to 10baseT/UTP as written in PR
#69133. I was about to re-check if the problem persisted in BETA3 but
found out that it now fails even earlier, before we get to the point
where we might see problem #69133. Hence this new report.
I'll quote the interesting part again, watch the "Unexpected node type"
and Failed to open device:
