I'll look at that.

I'm not sure it really counts as a feature, and I've no desire to tangle
with the effort to extend features beyond 32 bits.  Maybe we could have a new
ethtool command that took a struct with two args, so we can "set flag-foo val"
instead of 'enable-flag-foo' and 'disable-flag-foo'?

That should be only one additional method for the drivers to implement, and
can be used for the other patches I have planned as well.

Thanks,
Ben
