Hi Heiner

The marvell10g does this differently. It gets the local and link
partner advertised link modes and from that works out what the PHY is
doing. If auto-neg is not being used, it then reads the link speed
from the PMA.

The question is, should the Aquantia PHY do the same, or should it
look an vendor registers? Apart from getting the 1G advertisement, all
the Marvell code uses generic registers. So we should be able to move
most of it into phy-c45 and reuse it. That is what i would prefer.
