mutt suggests I sent you the following patches a while ago:

net/mlx5e: Set port administrative status in ndo_{open, close}
net/mlx5e: Initialize port administrative status to down

So I'm curious as to why you didn't follow up on them and instead came
up with this patch.

When I initially debugged this I pointed you to the fact that the
firmware also needs to be patched, as setting the administrative status
down via PAOS doesn't really do anything. The operational status will
remain up. I just tested this patchset with the latest release firmware
(12.14.2036) and I'm bumping into the same problem.

Until this is properly fixed the mlx5 driver is blacklisted in our test:
https://github.com/jpirko/lnst/blob/master/recipes/switchdev/basic-001-links.py#L19

Also, why is this directed at net-next?

Why is this needed? The link doesn't need to go through training when
setting PFC. It's only needed for PAUSE frames when auto-negotiation is
on, but you don't support that anyway.

Thanks.
