Subject: [PATCH net-next v1] net/core: Replace driver version to be kernel version
Date: Sat, 25 Jan 2020 18:14:01 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200125161401.40683-1-leon@kernel.org> (raw)

From: Leon Romanovsky <leonro@mellanox.com>

In order to stop useless driver version bumps and unify output
presented by ethtool -i, let's overwrite the version string.

Before this change:
[leonro@erver ~]$ ethtool -i eth0
driver: virtio_net
version: 1.0.0
After this change:
[leonro@server ~]$ ethtool -i eth0
driver: virtio_net
version: 5.5.0-rc6+

Signed-off-by: Leon Romanovsky <leonro@mellanox.com>
