Subject: Re: [PATCH] ethtool : Allow ethtool to set interface in loopback
 mode.

This patch seems to have been tab-damaged by your mailer - tabs have
been converted to spaces (and the wrong number of spaces).

The argument should be 'on' or 'off', consistent with other flag
parameters.

These new options need to be documented in the manual page too.

This exit code is already used.

But I don't think it really makes sense to assign unique exit codes to
every failure point, so you can just return 1.

Same here.
