The various ethtool operations for offload flags are being (or have
been) removed. The driver must set net_device::hw_features and
implement net_device_ops::ndo_set_features instead.

Either define this as a macro and use it in the .c file, or just define
it there. In either case, declare it as 'static const'.

These are MDIO registers and we have names for them in <linux/mii.h>.
Similarly for the following bit definitions.

These appear to be extensions and would have to be kept.

[...]

These are exact duplicates of definitions in <linux/mii.h>, so should be
removed.
