Subject: [PATCH] bcm87xx: disable autonegotiation by default

The bcm87xx phys don't support autonegotiation, so don't use it by
default, as otherwise phy_state_machine() will try to enable it (using
c22 requests, which also don't make any sense for the bcm78xx).

Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <>
Tested on a bcm8707, which uses the same id as 8727
