Yeah, that's strange. I still have the debug values at hand:

 - I advertise 0x5e1
 - I read in LPA 0xc9e1 from the switch
(and my bcm PHY tells me Rx and Tx pause disabled in a separate

Now, I cross-over with a TG3 and I get:

 - I advertise 0x5e1 (hopefully same value)
 - I read in LPA 0xc5e1 from the TG3
(and that other register tells me Rx and Tx pause can be enabled).
