Hi folks..

I have just committed some changes to factor out a bunch of common
ioctl code for Ethernet drivers, and modified some drivers to use
the common code.

I've tested a couple of the drivers I changed, and the changes are
pretty much mechanical, so I don't expect any problems.  But if you
do encounter problems, please let me know by sending a bug report
with send-pr(1).

Also, feel free to convert more drivers to use the common code (use
the elinkxl, i82557, tlp, or another driver I changed as an example)
and send-pr(1) those changes, as well.

Just a heads up...
