[WIRELESS]: Refactor wireless Kconfig.



This patch refactors the wireless Kconfig all over and already
introduces net/wireless/Kconfig with just the WEXT bit for now,
the cfg80211 patch will add to that as well.

---help---
Support for wireless LANs and everything having to do with radio,
but not with amateur radio or FM broadcasting.
Saying Y here also enables the Wireless Extensions (creates
/proc/net/wireless and enables iwconfig access). The Wireless
Extension is a generic API allowing a driver to expose to the user
space configuration and statistics specific to common Wireless LANs.
The beauty of it is that a single set of tool can support all the
variations of Wireless LANs, regardless of their type (as long as
the driver supports Wireless Extension). Another advantage is that
these parameters may be changed on the fly without restarting the
driver (or Linux). If you wish to use Wireless Extensions with
wireless PCMCIA (PC-) cards, you need to say Y here; you can fetch
the tools from

Say Y if you have any pre-802.11 wireless LAN hardware.
For now, few tools use this facility, but it might grow in the
future. The only downside is that it adds 4.5 kB to your kernel.
