Clean up CREDITS a bit.

Clean up CREDITS a bit.

This is a little comic relief...

I'm really not one to pick fights (though I am a bastard), and this is
really nothing personal.  But, I happen to run across this a couple of
weeks ago. The entry has absolutely _nothing_ to do with the kernel, and
it's questionable whether or not this person has anything in the kernel

1. pppd 8 bit clean error when the ISP is 8 bit clean

My ISP (Bellatlantic) offers PPP protocol and I can hook up no problem
with Windows 95. But when I try to connect with a chat script via PPPD,
I get a message after PAP authentcation (while it tries to negotiate
communication parameters) saying the recieving serial line is not 8 bit
clean (7 bit is 1). What is going on? Bell Atlantic says the line is 8
bit clean (8N1), yet the PPPD doesn't see it that way. I thought PPPD
sets the serial port to 8N1, de riguer. Do I need to explicitly set the
serial port to 8N1 nbefore I connect?
