  [19.04 FEAT] qeth: Enhanced link speed - kernel part

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in linux source package in Bionic:

Status in linux source package in Cosmic:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  SRU Justification:

  * This is more a request (rather than a bug) to add support for the newest 
OSA-Express7S (network-) card,
    so that even cosmic and bionic users should be able to benefit from it.

  * The support became upstream accepted with 4.20, mainly with commit

  [Test Case]

  * Due to the absence of that particular card in our (Canonical)
  system, the testing is up to IBM.

  * The recognition of the card type itself can be done via 'lsqeth |
  grep card_type',

  * and the functionality can be tested by network test tools, like

  * A regression test can of course be done on our (Canonical) system.

  [Regression Potential]

  * The regression potential can be considered as low since it only
  affects the s390x platform

  * and there only the qeth driver/module.

  * The patch itself is less complex and adds mainly lines and fields
  for the recognition of the new card.

  * The entire code needed is already included in disco and a sniff test was 
done based on disco's kernel 5.0.

  Provide enhanced link speed for OSA networks
  Business Case:
  Improved performance with OSA networks

  Available with kernel 4.20
