This is getting less friendly all the time, and it was never very
friendly to start with. We have the strings which represent these link
modes in the table used for dumping caps. How about allowing the user
to list a comma separate list of modes.

ethtool -s lan42 advertise 100000baseKR2/Full,100000baseSR2/Full,100000baseCR2/Full

Maybe i'm wrong, but this looks odd.

enum ethtool_link_mode_bit_indices {
        ETHTOOL_LINK_MODE_10baseT_Half_BIT      = 0,
        ETHTOOL_LINK_MODE_10baseT_Full_BIT      = 1,
        ETHTOOL_LINK_MODE_100baseT_Half_BIT     = 2,
        ETHTOOL_LINK_MODE_100baseT_Full_BIT     = 3,
        ETHTOOL_LINK_MODE_1000baseT_Half_BIT    = 4,
        ETHTOOL_LINK_MODE_1000baseT_Full_BIT    = 5,

These are numbers, not bitmasks, so & them together does not look
correct.
