[OpenWrt-Devel] Duplicate netifd protocol for l2tp

Two packages provide the "proto l2tp" netifd protocol: xl2tpd [1] in the
new packages feed, and l2tpv3tun [2] in oldpackages.

The config are totally different, the problem is really a name clash.
What is the recommended way to deal with name clashes in netifd protocols,
without breaking existing user configuration?

In this case, using "proto l2tpv2" for xl2tpd and "proto l2tpv3" for
l2tpv3tun would probably be the cleanest, but it would break configuration
for anyone using one or the other :)

Note that only the l2tpv3tun configuration is documented right now [3].
