1.49.1. RHBA-2010:0279: bug fix and enhancement update

An enhanced ethtool package that fixes a number of minor issues is now available.
The ethtool utility allows the querying and changing of specific settings on network adapters. These settings include speed, port, link auto-negotiation settings and PCI locations.
This updated package adds the following enhancements:
* ethtool can now display all NIC speeds, not just 10/100/1000. (BZ#450162)
* the redundant INSTALL file has been removed from the package. (BZ#472034)
* the ethtool usage message has been fixed to not state that -h requires a DEVNAME. (BZ#472038)
* ethtool now recognizes 10000 as a valid speed and includes it as a supported link mode. (BZ#524241, BZ#529395)
All ethtool users should upgrade to this updated package which provides these enhancements.
