tipc: Clean up configuration file
This patch addresses a number of minor (mostly cosmetic) issues relating to the configuration of TIPC, including the following: - Corrects range limits for maximum number of ports per node - Adds missing range limits for size of log buffer - Removes configuration setting relating to unsupported slave node capability - Standardizes description and help text wording for configuration settings - Removes unneeded blank spaces Signed-off-by: Allan Stephens <allan.stephens@windriver.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
