I agree with you but in that particular case, I think we are reading
from the correct device. The datasheet itself says that we should be
reading 1.4 and 1.11 as we expect, with 2.5G/5G support being set (these
registers are read-only, and the datasheet's values aren't what we
actually read).

I also just checked register 3.4 "PCS Speed Ability", and 3.8 "PCS
Status 2" which also contains informations on 2.5G/5G abilities, but
there's the same issue here.
