Petr is trying to introduce a link down reason, but it sounds like we
should also have have a way to enhance the link up with information like
the one you are providing here. It would also be nice if in the future,
ethtool could display additional vendor specific information when the
link is up. ethtool over netlink should facilitate that.

Thanks!
