Hi Heiner

Pause requires that the PHY can advertise the pause bits, and that the
MAC supports pause. So by default, we don't advertise pause. The MAC
needs to say it supports pause, by calling one of

void phy_support_sym_pause(struct phy_device *phydev);
void phy_support_asym_pause(struct phy_device *phydev);

These two then copy supported into advertising.
