kni: remove ethtool support
Current design requires kernel drivers and they need to be probed by Linux up to some level so that they can be usable by DPDK for ethtool support, this requires maintaining the Linux drivers in DPDK. Also ethtool support is limited and hard, if not impossible, to expand to other PMDs. Since KNI ethtool support is not used commonly, if not used at all, removing the support for the sake of simplicity and maintenance.
