SubjectRe: [PATCH net-next v6 09/15] ethtool: generic handlers for GET requests

It is very unfortunate for review to introduce function in a patch and
don't use it. In general, this approach is frowned upon. You should use
whatever you introduce in the same patch. I understand it is sometimes
hard.

IIUC, you have one ethnl_get_doit for all possible commands, and you
have this ops to do cmd-specific tasks. That is quite unusual. Plus if
you consider the complicated datastructures connected with this,
I'm lost from the beginning :( Any particular reason form this indirection?
I don't think any other generic netlink code does that (correct me if
I'm wrong). The nice thing about generic netlink is the fact that
you have separate handlers per cmd.

I don't think you need these ops and indirections. For the common parts,
just have a set of common helpers, as the other generic netlink users
are doing. The code would be much easier to read and follow then.
