The dependencies seem to be very confused. SCHED_PRIO does not depend
on anything new, SCH_RR also doesn't depend on anything. SCH_PRIO_MQ
and SCH_RR_MQ (which is missing) depend on SCH_PRIO/SCH_RR. A single
NET_SCH_MULTIQUEUE option seems better than adding one per scheduler
though.

git keeps changelogs, please don't add it here.

Why is this still here? Its a 1:1 mapping.

For the tenth time now, the user should enable this at
runtime. You can't just break things dependant on config
options.
