Also, for the strings (labels) passed back to user space, is there any
documentation for suggested values for these strings?  Even though we
can't be completely type-safe, if there were suggested values in
a comment in the code, it could help a great deal for any code trying to
parse them for multiple different drivers/nics.


The strings represent NIC-specific attributes.

Yes, but surely there is some comonality?  I'm not asking for something
set in stone, but just some general guidelines.  However, I don't feel
too strongly about this, so if it is not worth the time/effort, then
I'll still be happy :)
