Ok, I tested it, with :
    ethtool -s eth0 duplex half autoneg off speed 10
    ethtool eth0
       => see the changes
    ping -f x.x.x.x
    ethtool -s eth0 duplex full autoneg on
    ethtool eth0
       => see the changes
    ping -f x.x.x.x

This both with your patch and without, it works in both cases, and the former as
a smaller throughput, which makes me believe the patch is fine.
