wext: default to y

The way I initially thought we could do wireless extensions
is by making all the compat code in cfg80211 be independent
of CONFIG_WIRELESS_EXT, but this is turning out to not be
feasible. Therefore, fix the Kconfig help text and make the
option default to yes, so people won't get a nasty surprise
when mac80211 will get rid of its 'select WIRELESS_EXT' any
time now.

This option enables the legacy wireless extensions
(wireless network interface configuration via ioctls.)
Wireless extensions will be replaced by cfg80211 and
will be required only by legacy drivers that implement
wireless extension handlers. This option does not
affect the wireless-extension backward compatibility
code in cfg80211.
Say N (if you can) unless you know you need wireless
extensions for external modules.
Say Y unless you've upgraded all your userspace to use
nl80211 instead of wireless extensions.
