SubjectMake ipconfig.c work as a loadable module.

The patch at the end of this email makes ipconfig.c work as a loadable
module under the 2.5. The diff was taken against the bitkeeper tree
changeset 1.1075.

Currently ipconfig.o must get statically linked into the kernel. I have a
proprietary driver which the supplier will not provide a GPL version or
info. In order to mount root over NFS, I need to get the vendors driver
loaded via a ramdisk.

A couple more items get moved from ipconfig.h to nfs_fs.h.


Thanks,
Robin Holt
