    [NET] AX.25 Kconfig and docs updates and fixes
    
     o The AX.25 Howto is unmaintained since several years.  I've replaced it
       with a wiki at http://www.linux-ax25.org which provides more uptodate
       information.
     o Change default for AX25_DAMA_SLAVE to Y.  AX25_DAMA_SLAVE only compiles
       in support for DAMA but doesn't activate it.  I hope this gets Linux
       distributions to ship their AX.25 kernels with AX25_DAMA_SLAVE enabled.
       The price for this would be very small.
     o Delete historic changelog from comments, that's what SCM systems are
       meant to do.
     o ---help--- in Kconfig looks so yellingly eye insulting.  Use just help.
     o Rewrite the commented out piece of old Linux 2.4 configuration language
       to Kconfig for consistency.
     o Fixup dependencies.
