[PATCH] NET_SB1250_MAC: Update Kconfig entry

Original-recipient: rfc822;
 The SB1250 network interfaces are Gigabit Ethernet ones.  Move the 
Kconfig entry to the appropriate section and add some help text.

Signed-off-by: Maciej W. Rozycki <>
 It should be obvious; I hope the help text will be useful to somebody and 
will prevent from misclassifying the interface again in the future.

 Please apply,

+         This driver supports Gigabit Ethernet interfaces based on the
+         Broadcom SiByte family of System-On-a-Chip parts.  They include
+         the BCM1120, BCM1125, BCM1125H, BCM1250, BCM1255, BCM1280, BCM1455
+         and BCM1480 chips.

+         will be called sb1250-mac.
