Subject: [PATCH v3 0/3] virtio_net: allow hypervisor to indicate linkspeed and duplex setting

We have found it useful to be able to set the linkspeed and duplex
settings from the host-side for virtio_net. This obviates the need
for guest changes and settings for these fields, and does not require
custom ethtool commands for virtio_net.

The ability to set linkspeed and duplex is useful in various cases
as described here:

16032be virtio_net: add ethtool support for set and get of settings                                                                                                                                                           
Using 'ethtool -s' continues to over-write the linkspeed/duplex
settings with this patch.

The 1/3 patch is against net-next, while the 2-3/3 patch are the associated
qemu changes that would go in after as update-linux-headers.sh should
be run first. So the qemu patches are a demonstration of how I intend this
to work.



linux changes:

changes from v2:
* move speed/duplex read into virtnet_config_changed_work() so link up changes
  are detected
