Subject: [PATCH] wireless: check against default_ethtool_ops

Since:

commit 2c60db037034d27f8c636403355d52872da92f81

    net: provide a default dev->ethtool_ops

wireless core does not correctly assign ethtool_ops. In order to fix
the problem, and avoid assigning ethtool_ops on each individual cfg80211
drivers, we check against default_ethool_ops pointer instead of NULL in
wireless core.

This is not critical fix, user visible effect of a problem,
is lack of ethtool informations like statistic or link detection.
