Summary0002294: Autosensing with some nic not work properly
DescriptionWith some chipsets nic autosensing is a big problem.

I have here some chipsets (National Semiconductor Corporation DP83815 Ethernet Controller) wo have problems with autosensing.

log messages:

Sep 24 11:44:42 efw kernel: eth2: Autonegotiation advertising 0x5e1 partner 0x45e1.
Sep 24 11:44:42 efw kernel: eth2: Autonegotiation advertising 0x5e1 partner 0x00.
Sep 24 11:44:42 efw kernel: eth2: link down.
Sep 24 11:44:42 efw ifplugd(eth2)[3692]: Link beat lost.
Sep 24 11:44:43 efw kernel: eth2: Autonegotiation advertising 0x5e1 partner 0x45e1.
Sep 24 11:44:43 efw kernel: eth2: link up.
Sep 24 11:44:43 efw ifplugd(eth2)[3692]: Link beat detected

So the uplinks goes up and down and up and.....

Also got some errors like this for green nic

eth0: increased tx threshold, txcfg 0xd0f01010

Workaround for the moment is to set half duplex with no autosensing for the nic with mii-tool

10Mbit on red: mii-tool eth2 -F 10baseT-HD
100Mbit on green: mii-tool eth0 -F 100baseTx-HD

After a reboot you have to set the above lines again.

If you edit your /var/efw/inithooks/start.local and append these lines it would be done at every boot:

#!/bin/sh
mii-tool eth2 -F 10baseT-HD
exit 0

Please implement a solution for this in the gui at the network wizard or uplink/interface editor to set speed and autosensing type (auto, manual)
