Subject: [patch] dgrs romove Kconfig option

nobody objected to adrian's rfc dropping dgrs on netdev back in dec. 2006.
as bonus points this will get rid of a prorpietary licensed firmware.

so now be a bit more serious and remove the Kconfig entries
and see if anyone shouts. if no voice is to be heard as
expected by zero bug entries on or,
the full removal is scheduled for 2.6.24.
