    NAPI: kconfig prompt and deleted doc file
    
    - make the kconfig NAPI option prompt consistent across all net drivers
      (other than EXPERIMENTAL; can it now be removed also, or is the new
      napi_struct implementation now EXPERIMENTAL ?)
    - remove comment about the now-deleted NAPI_HOWTO.txt file
    - clean up typos in Tulip NAPI & Interrupt Mitigation
