Subject: [PATCH net v2 2/3] ethtool: Account for hw_features in netlink interface

ethtool-netlink ignores dev->hw_features and may confuse the drivers by
asking them to enable features not in the hw_features bitmask. For
example:

1. ethtool -k eth0
   tls-hw-tx-offload: off [fixed]
2. ethtool -K eth0 tls-hw-tx-offload on
   tls-hw-tx-offload: on
3. ethtool -k eth0
   tls-hw-tx-offload: on [fixed]

Fitler out dev->hw_features from req_wanted to fix it and to resemble
the legacy ethtool behavior.

Fixes: 0980bfcd6954 ("ethtool: set netdev features with FEATURES_SET request")
