    Subjectrestructuring of filesystems config menu

    i've attached a gzipped patch against 2.5.56 for reorganizing
    the filesystem menu under "make xconfig", and i'm certainly
    open to feedback/comments/criticism/large sums of money.

    some points about this patch:

    1) if anyone wants to carefully check the dependencies and
    make sure they're correct, that would be nice.

    2) perhaps making sure the dependencies match the claims
    in the help screens would be helpful. i noticed that
    the help screens sometimes make dependency claims that
    are wildly untrue, but i didn't want to mess with that
    stuff yet as i wasn't totally comfortable.

    3) much to my delight, i found out by accident that i can
    add leading asterisks to menu and config lines with no
    effect on the eventual config step -- this makes it
    wonderfully easy to edit and reorganize using emacs
    outline mode, particularly showing subdependencies.

    is this just a fluke? obviously, it's easy enough to
    strip out the leading asterisks in the final version,
    but if they're not doing any harm, i'd just as soon
    leave them in.
