So, it is broken :-( But I'm not surprised.

Anyway, I think you could be interested in this discussion about my
patch series, but I forgot to CC you on the first patch/cover letter.
You can read whole discussion on public archive available at:

https://lore.kernel.org/netdev/20201230154755.14746-1-pali@kernel.org/t/#u

If you have any comments, let me know so I can fix it for V2.

Those RTL8672/RTL9601C SFP are extremely broken and I do not think that
"rebrander" CarlitoxxPro would do anything with it.

So link does not work at all?
