Subject: [PATCH net 4/6] bnxt_en: Return -EOPNOTSUPP for ETHTOOL_GREGS on VFs.

From: Vasundhara Volam <>

Debug firmware commands are not supported on VFs to read registers.
This patch avoids logging unnecessary access_denied error on VFs
when user calls ETHTOOL_GREGS.

By returning error in get_regs_len() method on the VF, the get_regs()
method will not be called.

Fixes: b5d600b027eb ("bnxt_en: Add support for 'ethtool -d'")
