Hi Andrew!

I've just double-checked, and you're right, management firmware operates
with NVM_* definitions, while QED_LM_* are used only in QED and QEDE to
fill Ethtool link settings.
I didn't notice this while working on the series, but it would be really
a lot better to just use generic definitions.
So I'll send v3 soon.
