Subject: [PATCH v2] net: driver: stmicro: Remove some useless the lock protection

From: Yang Wei <Wei.Yang@...driver.com>

kernel always invokes a pair of rtnl_lock adn rtnl_unlock to
protect dev_ethtool(), so its not neccessary to invoke spin_lock/unlock
in ethtool_ops.

Hi David,

   I regenerate this patch based on net/next repo in v2.
