The merge window is closed, so not 2.6.23.

The cases where Kconfig allows selection of NAPI-or-not is generally 
either (a) the author considers one path new and relatively unproven or 
(b) the author has not bothered to figure out which is the best choice, 
and instead just offers both rather than doing the legwork to find out.

Either way, individual cases must be examined and it is not necessarily 
just a cleanup.
