I wonder whether you have read the documentation for the phylink
mac_config() method (if not, please read it, it contains some very
important information about what mac_config() should do.) When
operating in SGMII in-band mode, state->speed and state->duplex are
not actually valid.

You'll probably want to submit a better patch after reading the
documentation.

Thanks.
