dgrs: remove from build, config, and maintainer list
Stop building and configuring driver for Digi RightSwitch, which was never actually sold to anyone, and remove it from MAINTAINERS. In response to an investigation into the firmware of the "Digi Rightswitch" driver, Andres Salomon discovered: > > Dear Andres: > > After further research, we found that this product was killed in place > and never reached the market. We would like to request that this not be > included. Since the product never reached market, clearly nobody is using this orphaned driver.

- The Digi International RightSwitch SE-X (dgrs) Device Driver
-This is a Linux driver for the Digi International RightSwitch SE-X
-EISA and PCI boards. These are 4 (EISA) or 6 (PCI) port Ethernet
-switches and a NIC combined into a single board. This driver can
-be compiled into the kernel statically or as a loadable module.
-There is also a companion management tool, called "xrightswitch".
-The management tool lets you watch the performance graphically,
-as well as set the SNMP agent IP and IPX addresses, IEEE Spanning
-Tree, and Aging time. These can also be set from the command line
-when the driver is loaded. The driver command line options are:
- debug=NNN Debug printing level
- dma=0/1 Disable/Enable DMA on PCI card
- spantree=0/1 Disable/Enable IEEE spanning tree
- hashexpire=NNN Change address aging time (default 300 seconds)
- ipaddr=A,B,C,D Set SNMP agent IP address i.e. 199,86,8,221
- iptrap=A,B,C,D Set SNMP agent IP trap address i.e. 199,86,8,221
- ipxnet=NNN Set SNMP agent IPX network number
- nicmode=0/1 Disable/Enable multiple NIC mode
-There is also a tool for setting up input and output packet filters
-on each port, called "dgrsfilt".
-Both the management tool and the filtering tool are available
-separately from the following FTP site:
-When nicmode=1, the board and driver operate as 4 or 6 individual
-NIC ports (eth0...eth5) instead of as a switch. All switching
-functions are disabled. In the future, the board firmware may include
-a routing cache when in this mode.

-For information on purchasing a RightSwitch SE-4 or SE-6
-board, please contact Digi's sales department at 1-612-912-3444
-or 1-800-DIGIBRD. Outside the U.S., please check our Web page at:
-for sales offices worldwide. Tech support is also available through
-the channels listed on the Web site, although as long as I am
-employed on networking products at Digi I will be happy to provide
-any bug fixes that may be needed.
