[PATCH 4/4] usb: gadget: Add and use matching SPL USB ethernet gadget Kconfig symbols

Sat May 6 16:42:40 CEST 2023

Define SPL_USB_ETH_RNDIS symbol to make it possible to select USB
gadget ethernet support in SPL and U-Boot separately in Kconfig .
Make use of the new symbols in gadget Makefile and move the rndis.o
just below the now merged USB_ETHER symbol in Makefile.

+	help
+	  There is several models (protocols) to implement Ethernet over USB
+	  devices. The main ones are Microsoft's RNDIS and USB's CDC-Ethernet
+	  (also called CDC-ECM). RNDIS is obviously compatible with Windows,
+	  while CDC-ECM is not. Most other operating systems support both, so

+	  The RNDIS (Remote Network Driver Interface Specification) is a
+	  Microsoft proprietary protocol to create an Ethernet device over USB.
+	  Windows obviously supports it, as well as all the major operating
+	  systems, so it's the best option for compatibility.
