Hmm, so the newer (post 4110e02eb45e) kernels are actually "better", in
that they accurately report that link speed is 10Mb/s.

In the end, do you know of a kernel version that doesn't exhibit the
problem of slower actual link speed?

I had a look at the code and I tried to reproduce the problem on the
hardware that I have (I217) but could not.

Also, out of curiosity, have you tried playing with the speed, autoneg
and advertise settings via ethtool -s to force the link to 1000Mb/s?
