Hi Florian

ethtool -d allows you to dump the registers for a port which has a
slave device. It is sometimes useful to dump the cpu ports registers,
or DSA ports, i.e. inter switch ports. Marvell devices also have two
sets of global registers, not specific to any port.

For my debugging, i have code which allows you to read the registers
via debugfs.
