But you still aren't handling the case where only one of the driver and
ethtool is upgraded, even by reporting an error.

I'm never going to apply patches to ethtool that obviously break binary
compatibility, so you are wasting your time sending me new versions
that do that.

At this point you should probably just bump the dump version numbers in
both places.
