Stupid question, does it make more sense to clarify the names in the
Kconfig to more naturally follow what people are expecting? In the
case of Neterion, it was standalone for several years, then aquired by
Exar and shutdown in 11 months without ever making any Exar branded
adatpers. Users, if they still exist, would probably think of it as
Neterion and not Exar (as there have been no follow-on adapters and I
don't believe any plans to ever do so).

So, this might be better as a rename of the Kconfig to something like
"Neterion (Exar) devices". Of course, there is a fair amount of Exar
names in the Kconfig. If you agree, I can do a clean-up of this to
match the expectations.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Jon
