Subject[002/107] net: fix ETHTOOL_SFEATURES compatibility with old ethtool_ops.set_flags
2.6.39-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: =?UTF-8?q?Micha=C5=82=20Miros=C5=82aw?= <mirq-linux@rere.qmqm.pl>

[ Upstream commit fd0daf9d58f6b3342d07c5f6bbfb304dbe5db4ec ]

Current code squashes flags to bool - this makes set_flags fail whenever
some ETH_FLAG_* equivalent features are set. Fix this.
