remove the strip driver

The latest trace about usage of this driver I found was an (unanswered)
request for help by a user trying to get it working reliably five years
ago with kernel 2.4 .

And even if it was still working the use cases of this driver (requiring
both the hardware and someone providing this kind of wireless network)
have become practically nonexisting.

This patch therefore removes the strip driver.

This option does not affect the kernel build, it only
lets you choose drivers.

Say Y if you have a Metricom radio and intend to use Starmode Radio
IP. STRIP is a radio protocol developed for the MosquitoNet project
(on the WWW at <>) to send Internet
traffic using Metricom radios. Metricom radios are small, battery
powered, 100kbit/sec packet radio transceivers, about the size and
weight of a cellular telephone. (You may also have heard them called
"Metricom modems" but we avoid the term "modem" because it misleads
many people into thinking that you can plug a Metricom modem into a
phone line and use it as a modem.)
You can use STRIP on any Linux machine with a serial port, although
it is obviously most useful for people with laptop computers. If you
think you might get a Metricom radio in the future, there is no harm
in saying Y to STRIP now, except that it makes the kernel a bit
To compile this as a module, choose M here: the module will be
called strip.
