Macvlan PPPoE support

@sunser Did you try: set interfaces ethernet eth1 vif <vlanid> ... already?

Tested, if using Vif requires more physical lines, and switches can use Vif mode PPPoE dialing, using macvlan does not require additional equipment

Can you please clarify. What is Vif mode dialing and what has a vlan id to do with multiple physical lines? Does that mean your problem is solved?

@sunser Can you please clarify if you still encounter that issue?

No answer from user.

This should actually be possible after the PPPoE interface rewrite in the latest rolling image.
