That's right. The older netatalk 2.x branch has a few different branches
on GitHub that are being maintained to allow AppleTalk connectivity with
older Macs through Ethernet (or LocalTalk-to-Ethernet bridges), so
people are still actively using AppleTalk with Ethernet.

I would've thought AppleTalk was completely gone by now, and I certainly
would not be sad to see the dregs removed from pppd, but there was a
patch release on the netatalk package just last month, so what do I know?
I think netatalk 3.0 dropped all appletalk protocol stuff a long time ago and
only supports AFP over IP.
BTW, I messed up my quoting in my previous message so it was hard to see
part of my reply -- but I agree that everything in drivers/net/appletalk
could go away except for the Kconfig entry for CONFIG_ATALK. And dev.c
and the other LocalTalk-specific bits in net/appletalk could go away.
