Thanks, Taku.

I put this explanation in the commit message, and changed 32 to ARRAY_SIZE().
It's queued for sending to DaveM for the next merge window.

Result below.

Thanks!
Rusty.

Subject: virtio_net: implements ethtool_ops.get_drvinfo
Date: Fri, 11 Jun 2010 10:29:02 +0900
From: Taku Izumi <izumi.taku@jp.fujitsu.com>

I often use "ethtool -i" command to check what driver controls the
ehternet device.  But because current virtio_net driver doesn't
support "ethtool -i", it becomes the following:

        # ethtool -i eth3
        Cannot get driver information: Operation not supported

This patch simply adds the "ethtool -i" support. The following is the
result when using the virtio_net driver with my patch applied to.

        # ethtool -i eth3
        driver: virtio_net
        version: N/A
        firmware-version: N/A
        bus-info: virtio0

Personally, "-i" is one of the most frequently-used option, and most
network drivers support "ethtool -i", so I think virtio_net also
should do.
