The text "Ethernet (10000 Mbit)" _doesn't_ tell me that this option
"does not affect the kernel build, it only lets [me] choose drivers".
The "patches welcome" is quite appropriate. On the other hand, visible
Kconfig options without help text should almost never be allowed to go
in in the first place, IMO.
