Ajit Khaparde - Aug. 21, 2009, 4:54 p.m.
This patch adds a new "-f" option to the ethtool utility
to flash a firmware image specified by a file, to a network device.
The filename is passed to the network driver which will flash the image
on the chip using the request_firmware path.

The region "on the chip" to be flashed can be specified by an option.
It is upto the device driver to enumerate the region number passed by ethtool,
to the region to be flashed.

The default behavior is to flash all the regions on the chip.

Usage:
ethtool -f <interface name> <filename of firmware image>

ethtool -f <interface name> <filename of firmware image> [ REGION-NUMBER-TO-FLASH ]
