Add ethtool support for dumping the chip statistics. There aren't lots

Works fine for me on my Athlon64 laptop with a 8169 with built-in PHY.

Did some rsync'ing and some broadcast pings. Statistics looked sane. Also tried stopping networking ("/etc/init.d/network stop") and checked that all the stats had been reset to zero.

Thanks, bye, Rich =]
