Bug Description

[Impact]
ethtool -p doesn't work for HiSilicon D05 onboard 10G NICs. From ethtool(8):

---------%<-----------
-p --identify
       Initiates adapter-specific action intended to enable an operator to easily identify
       the adapter by sight. Typically this involves blinking one or more LEDs on the spe‐
       cific network port.
---------%<-----------

[Test Case]
Run "ethtool -p <iface>" for one of the impacted NIC interfaces. Watch for blinky light.

[Regression Risk]
Fix is local to a specific driver for onboard NICs, and a clean upstream cherry-pick.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-artful' to 'verification-done-artful'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-artful' to 'verification-failed-artful'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
