Subject: ethtool: allow ETHTOOL_GSSET_INFO for users

Please consider this for stable 3.0.y and 3.2.y:

commit f80400a26a2e8bff541de12834a1134358bb6642
Author: Michał Mirosław <>
Date:   Sun Jan 22 00:20:40 2012 +0000

    ethtool: allow ETHTOOL_GSSET_INFO for users
    Allow ETHTOOL_GSSET_INFO ethtool ioctl() for unprivileged users.
    ETHTOOL_GSTRINGS is already allowed, but is unusable without this one.
