Subject[PATCH 1/2] ethtool.h: Add #defines for unidirectional ethernet duplex
Date
A large variety of fiber ethernet PHYs and some copper ethernet PHYs
support forced "unidirectional link" modes. Some signalling modes are
designed for last-mile ethernet plants while others are designed for
strict security isolation (fiber with no return-path).

In order to configure those kinds of forced modes from userspace, we
need to add additional options to the "ethtool" interface. As such
"unidirectional" ethernet modes most closely resemble ethernet "duplex",
we add two additional DUPLEX_* defines to the ethtool interface:

#define DUPLEX_TXONLY 0x02
#define DUPLEX_RXONLY 0x03

Most ethernet PHYs will still need to be configured internally in a mode
with autoneg off and duplex full, except for a few model-specific PHY
register adjustments.

Most PHYs can simply use a regular forced-mode for rx-only configuration,
but it may be useful in the ethernet driver to completely disable the TX
queues or similar.
