I think there's enough information in common that it does make sense to
use common reporting functions, and that in turn suggests that it would
make sense to use a common structure.  You could alternately have the
callers in sfpdiag.c and qsfp.c extract the relevant fields and pass
them into the reporting functions.

The substantial duplication of reporting code from sfpid.c in your
latest submission is not OK.
