I haven't seen any Errata on that unfortunately.

I also thought about reading (1.4) "PMA/PMD Speed Ability", but the
2.5G and 5G speeds are also reported as not being supported on the
88X3310.

I agree with you, this might be a better way to handle that issue. For
now, I've only seen that issue on the 3310 and 2010, with PHY IDs
respectively 002b09aa and 002b09ab.

I 'll add a test for ids '002b09aX', hopefully there won't be any PHYs
with these IDs that don't support 2.5/5G.

In that case, there's no need for a separate mv2110_config_init in
patch 7.

Thanks,

Maxime.
