Haha ! The OpenBMC kernel is still at 4.7 which was still saying you
should only clear bits in there :-) I think that's what I initially
read.

Thanks for the pointer.

Doesn't fix my other problem with Pause in 1000bT land. Do you know if
that way of reflecting the pause capability by hijacking the old
LPA bits is widely implemented enough that we should put it in
genphy_read_status() ?

Cheers,
Ben.
