[RFC] ethtool: remove phys_id from ethtool_ops

Hold this patch until after the Intel and Qlogic driver
changes are merged into net-next. Patches have been submitted
but still waiting for vendor.

After that all the upstream kernel drivers now use phys_id, 
and the old ethtool_ops interface (phys_id) can be removed.

Since everything is now merged, I've applied this.

Thanks!

Actually, it seems we're not ready yet, e1000 still refers
to phys_id.

Can someone take care of this?

I know that most of our drivers still refer to phys_id, with Bruce's
recent patches to ethtool, we can finish up fixing the patches against
the Intel drivers.  I will make every effort to have patches to you by
Monday/Tuesday.
