Subject: [PATCH ethtool v2] netlink: Print and return an error when features weren't changed

The legacy ethtool prints an error message and returns 1 if no features
were changed as requested. Port this behavior to ethtool-netlink.
req_mask is compared to wanted_mask to detect if any feature was
changed. If these masks are equal, it means that the kernel hasn't
changed anything, and all bits got to wanted.
