SubjectRe: [PATCH] net/ibm/emac: bump version numbers for correct work with ethtool

First of all you didn't provide a proper Signoff.

Second of all, there was so much discussion about whether this does
or does not break things for various combinations of old/new ethtool
and kernel.

Therefore I want a real detailed commit message that explains why this
is all OK. After so much confusion and discussion, providing a patch
with absolutely no commit message is completely inappropriate.
