[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.

+# Packet configuration
+config PACKET
+ tristate "Packet socket"
+ ---help---
+ The Packet protocol is used by applications which communicate
+ directly with network devices without an intermediate network
+ protocol implemented in the kernel, e.g. tcpdump. If you want them
+ to work, choose Y.
+ To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will
+ be called af_packet.
+ If unsure, say Y.
+ bool "Packet socket: mmapped IO"
+ depends on PACKET
+ help
+ If you say Y here, the Packet protocol driver will use an IO
+ mechanism that results in faster communication.
+ If unsure, say N.
