Looks good.

I'm going to assume that the cls_tcindex.o in the second entry is a
cut'n'paste error and should read sch_ingress.o.

Should the CLS_POLICE entry, then, read like this?

Traffic policing (needed for in/egress)
CONFIG_NET_CLS_POLICE
Say Y to support traffic policing (bandwidth limits). Needed for ingress
and egress rate limiting.

A ``decay in the social contract'' is detectable; there is a growing
feeling, particularly among middle-income taxpayers, that they are not

taxes paid. The tendency is for taxpayers to try to take more control
of their finances ..
