I have committed your new dissector as SVN revision 23371.  I added
entries to epan/etypes.h and epan/dissectors/packet-ethertype.c for Wake
on LAN and used the #define from the first file instead of 0x0842 in the
actual dissector file.  The visible part of these changes allows the
Ethertype to show a value of "Wake on LAN" in the Ethernet dissector.

Thanks for your contribution!  I meant to make a Wake on LAN dissector a
while back, but never got around to it :).

Looks great.  Thanks!
