Hi Florian, Heiner

We should consider what we want to do with the generic 10G driver.

Can a c45 PHY be expected to work using a generic driver? We know
1000BaseT is not going to work, that needs vendor registers. But the
rest might?

I think we either need to drop the generic 10G driver, or make it use
all the new code which has been added over the last month.
