Standalone repository for libnetworking stack

Some odd questions that are mostly about making this a self-contained
entity with no loose ends.
+ Can the network demos be merged also?
+ rtems-docs has the Network Users Guide which is legacy only. As a
minimum, it needs to be renamed to have Legacy in the title. Better would
be to convert it to markdown/asciidoc and just toss it in the legacy repo.
+ Gaisler needs a poke about the grlib NIC drivers. And Daniel expects it.
File a ticket that it is time for them to support libbsd and assign it to
I'm ok with Chris' proposal to give notice Grep'ing for
NETWORK_DRIVER_NAME did turn up more files than I expected. Perhaps that is
simply a list of driver names and attach functions for a readme in the
repo. That's all that should have been in the bsp.h files.
This is awesome work and much appreciated.
