Subject: [patch] dgrs removal

nobody objected to adrian's rfc dropping dgrs on netdev back in dec. 2006.
-> http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=116507999803538&w=2
as bonus points this will get rid of a proprietary licensed firmware.

"The dgrs driver is crap and assumes direct access to PCI iomem"
- Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@...ux-foundation.org>

dgrs has no users and it's hardware was never shipped.
