There is no requirement to set state->interface here. Phylink doesn't
cater for interface changes when reading the state. As documented,
phylink will set state->interface already before calling this function
to indicate what interface mode it is currently expecting from the
hardware.

Please use phylink_autoneg_inband(mode) here.

There has been the suggestion that we should allow in-band AN to be
disabled in 1000base-X if we're in in-band mode according to the
ethtool state. I have a patch that adds that.

You can't actually abort at this point - phylink will print the error
and carry on regardless. The checking is all done via the validate()
callback and if that indicates the interface mode is acceptable, then
it should be accepted.

You don't want to remove this. When operating in 1000BASE-X mode, it
will be called if a restart is required (e.g. macb_pcs_config()
returning positive, or an ethtool request.) You need to keep the empty
function. That may also help the diff algorithm to produce a cleaner
patch too.
