> Sven Auhagen reports that if he changes a SFP+ module for a SFP module
> on the Macchiatobin Single Shot, the link does not come back up.  For
> Sven, it is as easy as:
> - Insert a SFP+ module connected, and use ping6 to verify link is up.
> - Remove SFP+ module
> - Insert SFP 1000base-X module use ping6 to verify link is up: Link
>   up event did not trigger and the link is down
> but that doesn't show the problem for me.  Locally, this has been
> reproduced by:
> - Boot with no modules.
> - Insert SFP+ module, confirm link is up.
> - Replace module with 25000base-X module.  Confirm link is up.
> - Set remote end down, link is reported as dropped at both ends.
> - Set remote end up, link is reported up at remote end, but not local
>   end due to lack of link interrupt.
> Fix this by setting up both GMAC and XLG interrupts for port 0, but
> only unmasking the appropriate interrupt according to the current mode
> set in the mac_config() method.  However, only do the mask/unmask
> dance when we are really changing the link mode to avoid missing any
> link interrupts.
