I wonder about this - will drivers cope with having two link-up events
via adjust_link without a corresponding link-down event?  What if they
touch registers that are only supposed to be touched while the link is
down?  Obviously, drivers have to opt-in to this interface, so it may
be okay provided we don't get wholesale changes.

Should we be making that conditional on something changing and autoneg
being enabled, like phy_set_asym_pause() does?  There is no point
interrupting an established link if the advertisement didn't change.
