Have you ever needed to get at some details about a network interface from
inside a Ruby script, but got stuck trying to parse the output of ethtool? If
so, you're one-in-a-million, but at least you don't have to write an ethtool
parser any more. use Rethtool instead!
At present, Rethtool only supports a couple of things:
* Retrieve various details about the interface (link speed, duplex, etc).
* Determine if the link is currently up or down.
Adding extra SIOCETHTOOL features is relatively straightforward, thanks to
cstruct and the base infrastructure already in place.
