Subject: re: tg3: Use *_UNKNOWN ethtool definitions

Hello Matt Carlson,

The patch e740522e6d3a: "tg3: Use *_UNKNOWN ethtool definitions" from 
Feb 13, 2012, leads to the following Smatch warning:
drivers/net/ethernet/broadcom/tg3.c:1822 tg3_adjust_link()
	 error: tp->link_config.active_speed is never equal to -1 (wrong type 0 - 65535).

-       if ((phydev->link && tp->link_config.active_speed == SPEED_INVALID) ||
-           (!phydev->link && tp->link_config.active_speed != SPEED_INVALID) ||
+       if ((phydev->link && tp->link_config.active_speed == SPEED_UNKNOWN) ||
+           (!phydev->link && tp->link_config.active_speed != SPEED_UNKNOWN) ||

Since tp->link_config.active_speed is an unsigned short, it never is
equal to SPEED_UNKNOWN (-1).

I introduced the SPEED_UNKNOWN so I feel bad that it's causing trouble
now.  :/

Also this warning:
drivers/net/ethernet/broadcom/tg3.c:3909 tg3_phy_copper_begin(14)
error: tp->link_config.speed is never equal to -1 (wrong type 0 - 65535).
