Subject: [PATCH net-next] ethtool: Make more commands available to
 unprivileged processes

'Get' commands should generally not require CAP_NET_ADMIN, with
the exception of those that expose internal state.

Signed-off-by: Ben Hutchings <bhutchings@...arflare.com>

The one command I'm not sure about is ETHTOOL_STATS.  It might reveal
too much detail about network traffic.  That said, /proc/net/dev and
/sys/class/net/*/statistics are already world-readable.

Ben.
