OK, let me have a closer look at the other patches you sent me.
To test them I need to get my DTU running first. And I need to check
what happens if certain standard registers don't report what they
should and how to deal with this. E.g. the AQCS109 according to the
datasheet reports in the speed ability register that it is 10G-capable,
what it is not.
