Subject[PATCH] 2.5: make gigabit ethernet into a real submenu
Linus,

The attached unidiff creates a parent entry for all gigabit ethernet
interfaces, making the submenu consistent with that of 10/100. Suggested
by Robert P. J. Day. Trivial patch against 2.5-bkcurrent.

Please apply,

+ ---help---
+ Ethernet (also called IEEE 802.3 or ISO 8802-2) is the most common
+ type of Local Area Network (LAN) in universities and companies.
+
+ Common varieties of Ethernet are: 10BASE-2 or Thinnet (10 Mbps over
+ coaxial cable, linking computers in a chain), 10BASE-T or twisted
+ pair (10 Mbps over twisted pair cable, linking computers to central
+ hubs), 10BASE-F (10 Mbps over optical fiber links, using hubs),
+ 100BASE-TX (100 Mbps over two twisted pair cables, using hubs),
+ 100BASE-T4 (100 Mbps over 4 standard voice-grade twisted pair
+ cables, using hubs), 100BASE-FX (100 Mbps over optical fiber links)
+ [the 100BASE varieties are also known as Fast Ethernet], and Gigabit
+ Ethernet (1 Gbps over optical fiber or short copper links).
+
+ If your Linux machine will be connected to an Ethernet and you have
+ a gigabit Ethernet network interface card (NIC) installed in your
+ computer, say Y here and read the Ethernet-HOWTO, available from
+ <http://www.linuxdoc.org/docs.html#howto>. You will then also have
+ to say Y to the driver for your particular NIC.
+
+ Note that the answer to this question won't directly affect the
+ kernel: saying N will just cause the configurator to skip all
+ the questions about gigabit Ethernet network cards. If unsure,
+ say N.
