net: neighbour: Remove CONFIG_ARPD
This config option is superfluous in that it only guards a call to neigh_app_ns(). Enabling CONFIG_ARPD by default has no change in behavior. There will now be call to __neigh_notify() for each ARP resolution, which has no impact unless there is a user space daemon waiting to receive the notification, i.e., the case for which CONFIG_ARPD was designed anyways.

-config ARPD
- bool "IP: ARP daemon support"
- ---help---
- The kernel maintains an internal cache which maps IP addresses to
- hardware addresses on the local network, so that Ethernet
- frames are sent to the proper address on the physical networking
- layer. Normally, kernel uses the ARP protocol to resolve these
- mappings.

- Saying Y here adds support to have an user space daemon to do this
- resolution instead. This is useful for implementing an alternate
- address resolution protocol (e.g. NHRP on mGRE tunnels) and also for
- testing purposes.
