This patch adds an interface to the ethtool subsystem and
implements read/write functionality for handling settings with the
ethtool_cmd structure. "Speed" is the only setting implemented so far.
Other settings (like reading the duplex value) can be easily implemented
One can read the speed of the link by reading /sys/class/net/eth0/speed.
It seems that you can't write to /sys/class/net/eth0/speed, so the
"ethtool" command line utility must be used to set the speed.
So far, it is tested only in the DMA mode, since I don't have hardware
with DCR available.

When using a non-static PHY and 100Mbit connection in Temac, the speed
is not changed and stays at the reset value (1000Mbit). This leads to a
situation where data is not sent or received correctly since
temac_adjust_link() is not called due to lack of static PHY. Therefore
the link speed retains the reset value.
There is also no possibility to read or set the link speed from the user
The patch is done against the newest version of ll_temac_main.cc and
ll_temac.h of the linux-next tree.
Thanks to Michal Simek for his feedback on this patch!

The ll_temac driver uses phylib. The Ethtool ops should then also be
implemented using phylib and not by writing to the ll_temac registers
directly. Otherwise changes to the ll_temac speed will not be
reflected in the PHY.
