Isn't it problematic? I mean, in bnx2x we address ~same issue -
but due to symmetry we prevent ALL interfaces from changing
the link configuration.

How can user be aware of this 'private' behavior? via system logs?
documentation?

How does it interact with Physical Device Assignment of the first
partition?
