Subject[PATCH net-next 0/5] ethtool netlink interface, preliminary patches
Date
As Jakub Kicinski suggested in ethtool netlink v7 discussion, this
submission consists only of preliminary patches which raised no objections;
first four patches already have Acked-by or Reviewed-by.

- patch 1 exposes permanent hardware address (as shown by "ethtool -P")
via rtnetlink
- patch 2 is renames existing netlink helper to a better name
- patch 3 and 4 reorganize existing ethtool code (no functional change)
- patch 5 makes the table of link mode names available as an ethtool string
set (will be needed for the netlink interface)

Once we get these out of the way, v8 of the first part of the ethtool
netlink interface will follow.

Michal Kubecek (5):
rtnetlink: provide permanent hardware address in RTM_NEWLINK
netlink: rename nl80211_validate_nested() to nla_validate_nested()
ethtool: move to its own directory
ethtool: move string arrays into common file
ethtool: provide link mode names as a string set
