Merge branch 'ethtool-fix-use-of-SPEED_UNKNOWN-constant'

Michael Zhivich says:

ethtool: fix use of SPEED_UNKNOWN constant

This patch series addresses 2 related issues:

1. ethtool_validate_speed() triggers a "signed-unsigned comparison"
warning due to type difference of SPEED_UNKNOWN constant (int)
and argument to ethtool_validate_speed (__u32).

2. some drivers use u16 storage for SPEED_UNKNOWN constant,
resulting in value truncation and thus failure to test against
SPEED_UNKNOWN correctly.

This revised series addresses several feedback comments:
- split up the patch in to series
- do not unnecessarily change drivers that use "int" storage
  for speed values
