Jeff Kirsher - Nov. 25, 2008, 1:19 a.m.
Since the netlink option for DCB is necessary to actually be useful,
simplified the Kconfig option.  In addition, added useful help text for the
Kconfig option.

+	  requirements (highly reliable, no drops vs. best effort vs. low
+	  latency) to co-exist on Ethernet.
+
+	  DCB features include:
+	    Enhanced Transmission Selection (aka Priority Grouping) - provides a
+	      framework for assigning bandwidth guarantees to traffic classes.
+	    Priority-based Flow Control (PFC) - a MAC control pause frame which
+	      works at the granularity of the 802.1p priority instead of the
+	      link (802.3x).
 
 	  If unsure, say N.
