We already have similar lookup in devlink_compat_running_version() (the
only difference seems to be that we keep holding devlink_mutex until the
end there) and it's likely the net_device -> devlink lookup will be
needed in more places in the future. How about having a helper for it?

I also wonder how does the lookup scale. But I don't have clear idea
how long the lists can become in real life and the ethtool operations
are not really time critical.
