Thinking about it again, as long as you report max_combined=1 in this
case, anything higher than 1 would be rejected by general ethtool code
and 0 is rejected by the first check above so that you can in fact only
get here for combined_count=1 - and only for ioctl requests as netlink
code path won't call the ethtool_ops callback if there is no change.
