As far as I can tell, with these 3 patches applied against 2.6.30-rc6 I can
force the link settings:
ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off speed 10
- 10 Mbps speed set
ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off speed 100
- 100 Mbps speed achieved
ethtool -s eth0 autoneg on speed 1000
- 1000 Mbps speed attained
The duplex setting might not be having an effect though since my switch's
FDx (full duplex) LED was extinguished for both the 10 and 100 Mbps cases
above. Explicitly setting the duplex flag using
ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off speed 100 duplex full
didn't make any difference - the FDx LED remained off. For completeness I
ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off speed 100 duplex half
and this caused no change compared to the "duplex full" case above.
Restoring autoneg made the FDx LED return (along with 1000 Mbps speed).
