[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.

# IPX configuration
+config IPX
+ tristate "The IPX protocol"
+ select LLC
+ ---help---
+ This is support for the Novell networking protocol, IPX, commonly
+ used for local networks of Windows machines. You need it if you
+ want to access Novell NetWare file or print servers using the Linux
+ Novell client ncpfs (available from
+ <ftp://platan.vc.cvut.cz/pub/linux/ncpfs/>) or from
+ within the Linux DOS emulator DOSEMU (read the DOSEMU-HOWTO,
+ available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>). In order
+ to do the former, you'll also have to say Y to "NCP file system
+ support", below.
+ IPX is similar in scope to IP, while SPX, which runs on top of IPX,
+ is similar to TCP. There is also experimental support for SPX in
+ Linux (see "SPX networking", below).
+ To turn your Linux box into a fully featured NetWare file server and
+ IPX router, say Y here and fetch either lwared from
+ <ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/system/network/daemons/> or
+ mars_nwe from <ftp://www.compu-art.de/mars_nwe/>. For more
+ information, read the IPX-HOWTO available from
+ <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
+ General information about how to connect Linux, Windows machines and
+ Macs is on the WWW at <http://www.eats.com/linux_mac_win.html>.
+ The IPX driver would enlarge your kernel by about 16 KB. To compile
+ this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ipx.
+ Unless you want to integrate your Linux box with a local Novell
+ network, say N.
