Design requirement are 10KB TX FIFO for the 10Gb/sec and 2.5KB for the 2.5Gb/sec.
Since only port 0 support 10Gb/sec and ports 1&2 support up to 2.5Gb/sec.
I don't see any reason to change this configurations.
Also TX FIFO size could be set only during probe.

PPv2.2 IP is part of 110 communication processor.
Next communication processor will has different Packet processor or next generation of PPv2.x
Limit is PPv2.2 TX FIFO.
