There's a rather more elegant way to write this, which is:

	if (lcladv & rmtadv & ADVERTISE_PAUSE_CAP) {
		cap = FLOW_CTRL_TX | FLOW_CTRL_RX;
	} else if (lcladv & rmtadv & ADVERTISE_PAUSE_ASYM) {
		if (lcladv & ADVERTISE_PAUSE_CAP)
			cap = FLOW_CTRL_RX;
		else if (rmtadv & ADVERTISE_PAUSE_CAP)
			cap = FLOW_CTRL_TX;
	}
