Please don't sneak in ethtool userspace API changes like this.  NAK.

The normal procedure for doing something like this is to create a 
separate patch and post it on netdev.  HOPEFULLY with the associated 
change to the ethtool(8) utility, to keep it in sync with the kernel. 
Otherwise, adding the above definition is useless to most users.  See 
http://sf.net/projects/gkernel/ or 
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/network/ethtool/ethtool.git for ethtool 
source code.

I ACK the changes to bnx2 outside of this, though.
