Hi Oleksij

It was mentioned in the cover note

https://github.com/lunn/ethtool/tree/feature/cable-test-v4

Is this something you want to continually make available, or just as
part of cable diagnostics. Additional nested attributes can be added
to the cable test results structure, and the user space code just
dumps whatever it finds. So it should be easy to have something like:

Pair A: OK
Pair A: Signal Quality Index class D

Are the classes part of the Open Alliance specification? Ideally we
want to report something standardized, not something proprietary to
NXP.
