v6: - renamed fw_length -> fw_size
    - added return value for insufficient fw_size
    - fixed the indentation problem in e1000
    - added ver.build.patch in i40e, keep the same with Linux kernel driver

v5: - modified the API rte_eth_dev_fw_version_get(uint8_t port_id,
      char *fw_version, int fw_length).

v4: - removed deprecation notice
    - renamed API as rte_eth_dev_fw_version_get
    - splited bus info print from this patch set

v3: - changed API, use rte_eth_dev_fw_info_get(uint8_t port_id,
      uint32_t *fw_major, uint32_t *fw_minor, uint32_t *fw_patch,
      uint32_t *etrack_id)
    - added statusment in /doc/guides/nics/features/default.ini and
      release_17_02.rst

v2: - fixed commit log

Now, the example ethtool can only show the driver information. From
customers' point of view, it should be better if we can have the same
way that the Linux kernel ethtool does to show firmware version.

These five patches added a new function ``rte_eth_dev_fw_version_get()``
to fetch firmware version related information and implement the
display in example ethtool.

Qiming Yang (5):
  ethdev: add firmware version get
  net/e1000: add firmware version get
  net/ixgbe: add firmware version get
  net/i40e: add firmware version get
  ethtool: display firmware version
