The "set" part is IMHO a bit confusing in combination with "show" type
subcommands.

Could you allow optional prefix "0x" as we do for link modes? Maybe
parse_hex_u32_bitmap() could be used for both.

Technically the return value should be -EOPNOTSUPP here but as the next
patch fixes that, it doesn't really matter.
