Jeff Kirsher - May 4, 2011, 7:30 p.m.
From: Emil Tantilov <emil.s.tantilov@intel.com>

Introduce buffered read/writes which greatly improves performance on
parts with large EEPROMs.

Previously reading/writing a word requires taking/releasing of synchronization
semaphores which adds 10ms to each operation. The optimization is to
read/write in buffers, but make sure the semaphore is not held for >500ms
according to the datasheet.

Since we can't read the EEPROM page size ixgbe_detect_eeprom_page_size() is
used to discover the EEPROM size when needed and keeps the result in
word_page_size for the rest of the run time.

Use buffered reads for ethtool -e.
