Summary
-------

A 'PPP' network service is not reported as "started" while this one is running.


Issue:
------

After to have configured a PPP over SSH connection as described from "/usr/share/doc/netifrc-0.7.3/net.example.bz2", the service 'net.ppp0' is not reported as "started" while this one is running.

 Bringing up interface ppp0
 *   Starting pppd in ppp0 ...                                                                                                                                                                                                         [ ok ]
 *   Backgrounding ...
 * WARNING: net.ppp0 has started, but is inactive


Suggested fix:
--------------

After search, it seems that the script '/lib/netifrc/net/pppd.sh' not report the status 'mark_service_started'.
Pending a correction, I have manual patched the file as this:

--- pppd.sh.bak 2021-11-15 23:50:04.488985499 +0100
+++ pppd.sh     2021-11-15 23:48:54.737518952 +0100

        # pppd will re-call us when we bring the interface up
        exit 0

checking /lib/netifrc/net:
# > grep mark_service_started *
vlan.sh:		mark_service_started "net.${ifname}"

Seems like most script in there lacks a call to mark_service_started
