Hi Russell

I actually did this for mv88e6xxx in a patchset for ZII devel B. It
was determining link based on SFP LOS, which we know is unreliable. It
said there was link even when the SERDES had lost link.

I did it by making use of the fixed-link state call back, since it was
a quick and dirty patch. But it might make more sense for the MAC to
call phylink_mac_change() for change in PCS state? Or add a PCS
