Move USB network drivers to drivers/net/usb.
It is preferable to group drivers by usage (net, scsi, ATA, ...) than by bus. When reviewing drivers, the [PCI|USB|PCMCIA|...] maintainer is probably less qualified on networking issues than a networking maintainer. Also, from a practical standpoint, chips often appear on multiple buses, which is why we do not put drivers into drivers/pci/net.

+ ---help---
+ This driver supports several kinds of network links over USB,
+ with "minidrivers" built around a common network driver core
+ that supports deep queues for efficient transfers. (This gives
+ better performance with small packets and at high speeds).
+
+ The USB host runs "usbnet", and the other end of the link might be:
+
+ - Another USB host, when using USB "network" or "data transfer"
+ cables. These are often used to network laptops to PCs, like
+ "Laplink" parallel cables or some motherboards. These rely
+ on specialized chips from many suppliers.
+
+ - An intelligent USB gadget, perhaps embedding a Linux system.
+ These include PDAs running Linux (iPaq, Yopy, Zaurus, and
+ others), and devices that interoperate using the standard
+ CDC-Ethernet specification (including many cable modems).
+
+ - Network adapter hardware (like those for 10/100 Ethernet) which
+ uses this driver framework.
+
+ The link will appear with a name like "usb0", when the link is
+ a two-node link, or "eth0" for most CDC-Ethernet devices. Those
+ two-node links are most easily managed with Ethernet Bridging
+ (CONFIG_BRIDGE) instead of routing.
+
+ For more information see <http://www.linux-usb.org/usbnet/>.

+
+ CDC Ethernet is an implementation option for DOCSIS cable modems
+ that support USB connectivity, used for non-Microsoft USB hosts.

+ * Broadcom Cable Modem (reference design)
+ * Toshiba PCX1100U
+ * ...
+

+ what other networking devices you have in use. However, if the
+ IEEE 802 "local assignment" bit is set in the address, a "usbX"
+ name is used instead.

+ PDAs from Olympus and some cell phones from Motorola.
+
+ If you install an alternate image, such as the Linux 2.6 based
+ versions of OpenZaurus, you should no longer need to support this
+ protocol. Only the "eth-fd" or "net_fd" drivers in these devices
+ really need this non-conformant variant of CDC Ethernet (or in
+ some cases CDC MDLM) protocol, not "g_ether".
