This patch moves IPVS from net/ipv4/ipvs to net/netfilter/ipvs, as
discussed earlier with Horms and Patrick McHardy. This is done as a
preparation for later adding IPv6 functionality to IPVS. The patch is
600kb, so I uploaded it here:

Move IPVS from net/ipv4/ipvs to net/netfilter/ipvs as a preparation
for adding IPv6 support to IPVS later on.

It applies to the current net-2.6 tree and IPVS is working after these
changes. The patch also moves the IPVS menu options into the Netfilter
menu subtree. Please let me know if that is ok or has to be changed
(it seems ok to me, as IPVS depends on Netfilter).

Again, I'm pretty new to kernel development, so let me know of
anything that can be done better.
