Hi John,

It seems you have applied both my earlier patch with get support and

adbaa18b9bc1 ("ethtool: Support for configurable RSS hash function")
b932835d2302 ("ethtool: print hash function with ethtool -x|--show-rxfh-indir")

Now we print the RSS function twice:

RX flow hash indirection table for em4 with 4 RX ring(s):
    0:      [...]
RSS hash function: toeplitz  <--- from my adbaa18b9bc1
RSS hash key:
Operation not supported
RSS hash function:           <--- from this patch
    toeplitz: on
    xor: off
    crc32: off

Reverting my patch is probably the easiest way forward, although I find
it more concise and easier to parse in test scripts :)
