SubjectWhy does NET_VENDOR_DEC default to y?

I just tried building a 3.3-rc6 kernel, based on my 3.1.0-rc4 kernel
config that I'm running. Sue me, I don't upgrade my home server
quickly.

Anyway, I was watching the 'make oldconfig' zoom by and I noticed that
I was suddenly adding in DEC networking cards. Now I admit I loved
the tulip cards from ages ago, but this is crazy. I haven't had a DEC
card in my systems for years, and it's not like you find them in new
systems.

So I poked into drivers/net/ethernet/dec/Kconfig and the stupid thing
is now setup so that NET_VENDOR_DEC defaults to Y. Wtf? Why do I
suddenly have to build in these drivers now? Or even get asked about
them by default now?

Maybe I'm just being too testy...

John
