It's infomask to interpret the same way as if it came from request
header (the notification triggered by a SET request or its ioctl
equivalent uses the same format as corresponding GET_REPLY message and
is created by the same code). But it could be called infomask, I have no
strong opinion about that.

Notification message types share the enum with other kernel messages:

/* message types - kernel to userspace */
enum {
ETHTOOL_MSG_KERNEL_NONE,
ETHTOOL_MSG_STRSET_GET_REPLY,
ETHTOOL_MSG_SETTINGS_GET_REPLY,
ETHTOOL_MSG_SETTINGS_NTF,
ETHTOOL_MSG_SETTINGS_SET_REPLY,
ETHTOOL_MSG_INFO_GET_REPLY,
ETHTOOL_MSG_PARAMS_GET_REPLY,
ETHTOOL_MSG_PARAMS_NTF,
ETHTOOL_MSG_NWAYRST_NTF,
ETHTOOL_MSG_PHYSID_NTF,
ETHTOOL_MSG_RESET_NTF,
ETHTOOL_MSG_RESET_ACT_REPLY,
ETHTOOL_MSG_RXFLOW_GET_REPLY,
ETHTOOL_MSG_RXFLOW_NTF,
ETHTOOL_MSG_RXFLOW_SET_REPLY,

/* add new constants above here */
__ETHTOOL_MSG_KERNEL_CNT,
ETHTOOL_MSG_KERNEL_MAX = (__ETHTOOL_MSG_KERNEL_CNT - 1)
};

Only entries for *_NTF types are non-null in ethnl_notify_handlers[]:

static const ethnl_notify_handler_t ethnl_notify_handlers[] = {
[ETHTOOL_MSG_SETTINGS_NTF] = ethnl_std_notify,
[ETHTOOL_MSG_PARAMS_NTF] = ethnl_std_notify,
[ETHTOOL_MSG_NWAYRST_NTF] = ethnl_nwayrst_notify,
[ETHTOOL_MSG_PHYSID_NTF] = ethnl_physid_notify,
[ETHTOOL_MSG_RESET_NTF] = ethnl_reset_notify,
[ETHTOOL_MSG_RXFLOW_NTF] = ethnl_rxflow_notify,
};

If the check above fails, it means that kernel code tried to send
a notification with type which does not exist or is not a notification,
i.e. a bug in kernel; that's why the WARN_ONCE.
