This repository tracks the work on netlink interface for communication between ethtool (and possibly other userspace tools) and kernel. The ultimate goal is to provide a more flexible and extensible alternative to the ioctl() interface used so far. The work started as a SUSE Hackweek 16 project https://hackweek.suse.com/16/projects/netlink-interface-for-ethtool but it's an ongoing effort aiming to get the interface into mainline kernel and let ethtool use it where available. There are two directories: kernel with a patch series for kernel (based on net-next tree) and ethtool with a patch series for userspace ethtool utility (based on master branch). The patch sets are based on commits - kernel: a842fe1425cb - ethtool: cabc523cd2c3 - iproute2: 3efdd4366772
