Hi Marek

There has been some discussion about this in the context of the new
netlink ethtool implementation. It seems to make sense to move some
parts of ethtool into devlink. devlink does has a representation of
CPU and DSA ports. So it could provide the --dump-registers and
--statistics options. And for DSA switches, it would probably just
work.
