3.13.11-ckt30 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Michel Stam <m.stam@xxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 3cc81d85ee01e5a0b7ea2f4190e2ed1165f53c31 ]

I've noticed every time the interface is set to 'up,', the kernel
reports that the link speed is set to 100 Mbps/Full Duplex, even
when ethtool is used to set autonegotiation to 'off', half
duplex, 10 Mbps.
It can be tested by:
ifconfig eth0 down
ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off speed 10 duplex half
ifconfig eth0 up

Then checking 'dmesg' for the link speed.
