My system is Linux red hat 8.0. I have installed
Ethtool1.8. And I made change in SIOCETHTOOL for
#define SIOCETHTOOL 0x8947 --This will give output for
all the argument except -i
//#define SIOCETHTOOL 0x8946 ---This will give details
about -i argument only.

See the exection below:
for listing:
[root sip7 <mailto:root%20sip7> ethtool-1.8]# ./ethtool
-a eth0
Pause parameters for eth0:
Autonegotiate: off
RX: off
TX: off
[root sip7 <mailto:root%20sip7> ethtool-1.8]# ./ethtool
-A eth0 rx on // The rx is changed

[root sip7 <mailto:root%20sip7> ethtool-1.8]# ./ethtool
-a eth0
Pause parameters for eth0:
Autonegotiate: off
RX: off // rx not refelected
TX: off

[root sip7 <mailto:root%20sip7> ethtool-1.8]# ./ethtool
-A eth0 rx off
rx unmodified, ignoring
no pause parameters changed, aborting
