Can it be the case that this is just a follow-up error?

In one of the mails from yesterday I showed you my patch to disable 1000
MB/s ... and still I had the link-always-down.

Similarly when I used a 10/100 MB/s switch only.

Both scenarios disabled 1000 MB/s, one more strictly than the other :-)
