Hi Russell, Doug

With netlink ethtool we have the possibility of adding a new API to
control this. And we can leave the IOCTL API alone, and the current
ethtool commands. We can add a new command to ethtool which uses the new API.

Question is, do we want to do this? Would we be introducing yet more
confusion, rather than making the situation better?
