Subject: [PATCH 0/7] ethtool: misc fixes for Coverity issues

I requested a Coverity scan of the current ethtool sources. There
weren't many issues identified, but it was non-zero.

Most/all of the resource leak issues can be explained away as
unimportant due to the fact that ethtool invocations are short-term
processes. Nevertheless, I prefer to have those issues "fixed" both
to avoid them as distractions and just to promote better coding
practices overall.

These are "fresh off the press" -- I'll re-review them again before
applying and pushing them. I appreciate any extra eyeballs that can
review them as well.

John W. Linville		Someday the world will need a hero, and you			might be all we have.  Be ready.
