Ben, thanks for looking to that.

I decided to divide patches for
1 - structure change which fixing problem
2 - add EMAC4SYNC
May be it wasn't clear from first patch...

There as a note to you with questions without answer:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/6/23/466

Also I said in that thread I can prove with table of
1. old ethtool old driver
2. patched ethtool old driver
3. patched ethtool patched driver
4. old ethtool patched driver

if you want to see difference in output on machine what I've.

Can we talk on some irc channel to resolve that situation,
it will be much faster, where I can find you on irc.debian.org?

Thanks in advance.
