Correct. genphy only supports upto 1G. The c45 based genphy_c45 is
slowly gaining more features and might soon support 2.5G.

The user could force it, using the ethool command you suggested. But
it is the PHY driver which configures this. If you add the driver code
to force it, you might as well add the driver code to allow it to be

There are none that i know of with open data sheets. However the IEEE
standards should be freely available and they describe the registers
the PHY is expected to have. There are also patches floating around
which add 2.5G and 5G support to the marvell10g driver. I expect these
patches to get merged soon, but maybe in a different form to make
genphy_c45 more generic.
