I know this.
# ./ethtool --version
ethtool version 5.10
# ./ethtool -s eth1 master-slave slave-force 
ethtool (-s): invalid value 'slave-force' for parameter 'master-slave'

As I wrote in the previous e-mail, it doesn't work because it doesn't 
include the process to parse the master-slave argument.

Once ethtool works properly, I will test the master-slave switching behavior.
