Nitpick: this probably wasn't intended.

As you register ethnl_act_cable_test() as doit handler and don't use any
of ethnl_default_*() handlers, you don't need to define
ethnl_cable_test_act_ops (and also struct cable_test_req_info and struct
cable_test_reply_data). These would be only used by default doit/dumpit
handlers and default notification handler.

This should be probably rather named cable_test_act_policy - or maybe
cable_test_policy would suffice as you have only one request message
type (I've been using *_get_policy for *_GET request and *_set_policy
for *_SET).

As you don't send a reply message, you don't need
ETHTOOL_MSG_CABLE_TEST_ACT_REPLY either (we may introduce it later if
there is a reply message).
