This needs testing on a 6390, with a port 9 or 10 using fixed link. We
have had issues in the past where mac_config() has been called once
per second, and each time it reconfigured the MAC, causing the link to
go down/up. So we try to avoid doing work which is not requires and
which could upset the link.
