[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.

+# CCITT X.25 Packet Layer

+ ---help---
+ X.25 is a set of standardized network protocols, similar in scope to
+ frame relay; the one physical line from your box to the X.25 network
+ entry point can carry several logical point-to-point connections
+ (called "virtual circuits") to other computers connected to the X.25
+ network. Governments, banks, and other organizations tend to use it
+ to connect to each other or to form Wide Area Networks (WANs). Many
+ countries have public X.25 networks. X.25 consists of two
+ protocols: the higher level Packet Layer Protocol (PLP) (say Y here
+ if you want that) and the lower level data link layer protocol LAPB
+ (say Y to "LAPB Data Link Driver" below if you want that).
+ You can read more about X.25 at <> and
+ <>.
+ Information about X.25 for Linux is contained in the files
+ <file:Documentation/networking/x25.txt> and
+ <file:Documentation/networking/x25-iface.txt>.
+ One connects to an X.25 network either with a dedicated network card
+ using the X.21 protocol (not yet supported by Linux) or one can do
+ X.25 over a standard telephone line using an ordinary modem (say Y
+ to "X.25 async driver" below) or over Ethernet using an ordinary
+ Ethernet card and the LAPB over Ethernet (say Y to "LAPB Data Link
+ Driver" and "LAPB over Ethernet driver" below).
+ To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module
+ will be called x25. If unsure, say N.
