Since the options are already inside "if RT2800PCI" and "if RT2800USB"
blocks, I don't see why anyone should object to the boolean defaulting
to 'y'.  It's not as if you are enabling a new driver.

I think Gertjan's proposal seems reasonable -- just don't forget! :-)
I would suggest a feature-removal-schedlue.txt patch, but I don't
know that it is worth the trouble.
