Technically it's a new requirement but as ethtool (userspace utility)
always issues ETHTOOL_GMSGLVL before ETHTOOL_SMSGLVL and does so even
for command lines like "ethtool -s eth0 msglvl 5" where it's not really
needed, providing ->set_msglevel() without ->get_msglevel() wouldn't
be of much use even now.
