drivers/net: Kconfig & Makefile cleanup



The is does a general cleanup of the drivers/net/ Kconfig and
Makefile.  This patch create a "core" option and places all
the networking core drivers into this option (default is yes
for this option).  In addition, it alphabitizes the Kconfig
driver options.

As a side cleanup, found that the arcnet, token ring, and PHY
Kconfig options were a tri-state option and should have been
a bool option.

If you have two serial connections to some other computer (this
usually requires two modems and two telephone lines) and you use
SLIP (the protocol for sending Internet traffic over telephone
lines) or PPP (a better SLIP) on them, you can make them behave like
one double speed connection using this driver. Naturally, this has
to be supported at the other end as well, either with a similar EQL
Linux driver or with a Livingston Portmaster 2e.
