[NET]: move config options out to individual protocols
Move the protocol specific config options out to the specific protocols. With this change net/Kconfig now starts to become readable and serve as a good basis for further re-structuring. The menu structure is left almost intact, except that indention is fixed in most cases. Most visible are the INET changes where several "depends on INET" are replaced with a single ifdef INET / endif pair. Several new files were created to accomplish this change - they are small but serve the purpose that config options are now distributed out where they belongs.

+# Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) (EXPERIMENTAL)
+config ATM
+ tristate "Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) (EXPERIMENTAL)"
+ depends on EXPERIMENTAL
+ ---help---
+ ATM is a high-speed networking technology for Local Area Networks
+ and Wide Area Networks. It uses a fixed packet size and is
+ connection oriented, allowing for the negotiation of minimum
+ bandwidth requirements.
+ In order to participate in an ATM network, your Linux box needs an
+ ATM networking card. If you have that, say Y here and to the driver
+ of your ATM card below.
+ Note that you need a set of user-space programs to actually make use
+ of ATM. See the file <file:Documentation/networking/atm.txt> for
+ further details.
+config ATM_CLIP
+ tristate "Classical IP over ATM (EXPERIMENTAL)"
+ depends on ATM && INET
+ help
+ Classical IP over ATM for PVCs and SVCs, supporting InARP and
+ ATMARP. If you want to communication with other IP hosts on your ATM
+ network, you will typically either say Y here or to "LAN Emulation
+ (LANE)" below.
+ bool "Do NOT send ICMP if no neighbour (EXPERIMENTAL)"
+ depends on ATM_CLIP
+ help
+ Normally, an "ICMP host unreachable" message is sent if a neighbour
+ cannot be reached because there is no VC to it in the kernel's
+ ATMARP table. This may cause problems when ATMARP table entries are
+ briefly removed during revalidation. If you say Y here, packets to
+ such neighbours are silently discarded instead.
+config ATM_LANE
+ tristate "LAN Emulation (LANE) support (EXPERIMENTAL)"
+ depends on ATM
+ help
+ LAN Emulation emulates services of existing LANs across an ATM
+ network. Besides operating as a normal ATM end station client, Linux
+ LANE client can also act as an proxy client bridging packets between
+ ELAN and Ethernet segments. You need LANE if you want to try MPOA.
+config ATM_MPOA
+ tristate "Multi-Protocol Over ATM (MPOA) support (EXPERIMENTAL)"
+ depends on ATM && INET && ATM_LANE!=n
+ help
+ Multi-Protocol Over ATM allows ATM edge devices such as routers,
+ bridges and ATM attached hosts establish direct ATM VCs across
+ subnetwork boundaries. These shortcut connections bypass routers
+ enhancing overall network performance.
+config ATM_BR2684
+ tristate "RFC1483/2684 Bridged protocols"
+ depends on ATM && INET
+ help
+ ATM PVCs can carry ethernet PDUs according to rfc2684 (formerly 1483)
+ This device will act like an ethernet from the kernels point of view,
+ with the traffic being carried by ATM PVCs (currently 1 PVC/device).
+ This is sometimes used over DSL lines. If in doubt, say N.
+config ATM_BR2684_IPFILTER
+ bool "Per-VC IP filter kludge"
+ depends on ATM_BR2684
+ help
+ This is an experimental mechanism for users who need to terminating a
+ large number of IP-only vcc's. Do not enable this unless you are sure
+ you know what you are doing.
