Subject: [PATCH net-next v3 0/3] add framework for selftests in devlink

  This patchset adds support for selftests in the devlink framework.
  It adds a callback .selftests_check and .selftests_run in devlink_ops.
  User can add test(s) suite which is subsequently passed to the driver 
  and driver can opt for running particular tests based on its capabilities.

  Patchset adds a flash based test for the bnxt_en driver.

  Suggested commands at user level would be as below:

changes from:
   After discussions with, passing a testmask from
   user to kernel is removed and a flag based arguments are adopted.
   This way we can have more than 32/64 selftests defined in the
   Below is the format from user to kernel and vice-versa.
   Kernel to user for show command . Users can know what all tests are
   supported by the driver. A return from kernel to user if driver
   supports TEST1, TEST4, and TEST7.
	|NEST |
	|_____ |TEST1|TEST4|TEST7|...

    User to kernel to execute test: If user wants to execute test4, test8,
	|NEST |
	|_____ |TEST4|TEST8|TEST1|...

	After executing the tests kernel return to user.
	|NEST |
	|_____ | NEST|       |NEST|       |NEST|
	        TEST4,RES4   TEST8,RES8   TEST1, RES1
    2) Added dumpit in devlink for list/show command.

  Addressed the changes requested by in patch v1.
  Fixed the style issues.
