This patch adds three help texts to arch/alpha/Config.help.
The texts were obtained from ESR's v2.97 Configure.help.

Say Y if you have an AS 2000 5/xxx or an AS 2100 5/xxx.
+ Is this a machine based on the EV67 core? If in doubt, select N here
+ and the machine will be treated as an EV6.
There are two different types of booting firmware on Alphas: SRM,
and certain other kinds of spinlock errors commonly made. This is
best used in conjunction with the NMI watchdog so that spinlock
deadlocks are also debuggable.
+ If you say Y here then read-write lock processing will count how many
+ times it has tried to get the lock and issue an error message after
+ too many attempts. If you suspect a rwlock problem or a kernel
+ hacker asks for this option then say Y. Otherwise say N.
+ If you say Y here then semaphore processing will issue lots of
+ verbose debugging messages. If you suspect a semaphore problem or a
+ kernel hacker asks for this option then say Y. Otherwise say N.
