If genetlink family registration fails, ethtool_notify() can be still
called from other code (e.g. the ethtool ioctl interface). In such case,
better bail out right away than fail somewhere later (probably after
preparing the message which can't be sent anyway).

The reason why I used ethtool_ prefix here was that this function is an
entry point which can be called from anywhere and other code doesn't
care if we are using netlink or something else. But as any caller would
need to include <linux/ethtool_netlink.h> anyway to get the constants
for cmd and req_mask, there is no point hiding the fact. I'll rename it
to ethnl_notify().

It's the same as with ethtool_genl_family. I'll make it static as well
until it's used in some other file.
