Subject: [PATCH 1/2] [RFC] NET: Implement a standard ndev_printk family

A lot of netdevices implement their own variant of printk and use
use variations of dev_printk, printk or others that use msg_enable,
which has been an eyesore with countless variations across drivers.

This patch implements a standard ndev_printk and derivatives
such as ndev_err, ndev_info, ndev_warn that allows drivers to
transparently use both the msg_enable and a generic netdevice
message layout. It moves the msg_enable over to the net_device
struct and allows drivers to obsolete ethtool handling code of
the msg_enable value.

The current code has each driver contain a copy of msg_enable and
handle the setting/changing through ethtool that way. Since the
netdev name is stored in the net_device struct, those two are
not coherently available in a uniform way across all drivers (a
single macro or function would not work since all drivers name
their net_device members differently). This makes netdevice
driver writes reinvent the wheel over and over again.

It thus makes sense to move msg_enable to the net_device. This
gives us the opportunity to (1) initialize it by default with a
globally sane value, (2) remove msg_enable handling code w/r
ethtool for drivers that know and use the msg_enable member
of the net_device struct. (3) Ethtool code can just modify the
net_device msg_enable for drivers that do not have custom
msg_enable get/set handlers so converted drivers lose some
code for that as well.
