This whole discussion was more emotional than intellectual :).

Anyway, I sent v4 https://lore.kernel.org/linux-rdma/20200127072028.19123-1-leon@kernel.org
and that variant provides default version value without harming
out-of-tree modules.

I have a plan to start and remove ethtool version and MODULE_VERSION()
calls from the drivers/net/* modules after merge window completes.

Does this plan sound right to you?

Thanks
