Subject: [PATCH net-next v2 04/10] net: ethtool: Add attributes for cable test reports

Add the attributes needed to report cable test results to userspace.
The reports are expected to be per twisted pair. A nested property per
pair can report the result of the cable test. A nested property can
also report the length of the cable to any fault.

v2:
Grammar fixes
Change length from u16 to u32
s/DEV/HEADER/g
Add status attributes
Rename pairs from numbers to letters.

   ====================================  ======  ==========================
 
+Notification contents:
+
+An Ethernet cable typically contains 1, 2 or 4 pairs. The length of
+the pair can only be measured when there is a fault in the pair and
+hence a reflection. Information about the fault may not be available,
+depending on the specific hardware. Hence the contents of the notify
+message are mostly optional. The attributes can be repeated an
+arbitrary number of times, in an arbitrary order, for an arbitrary
+number of pairs.
+
+The example shows the notification sent when the test is completed for
+a T2 cable, i.e. two pairs. One pair is OK and hence has no length
+information. The second pair has a fault and does have length
+information.
