removed my typo-ed [work] email
i use gmail as a mirror-email for my work email, because.... reasons
and i added my work-email to the --cc list with a typo, because the
universe seems to have wanted that [in a manner of saying it]

i'll think about the frame-generator;

i was super-happy when the cable-test support was added;
when i first wrote the PHY, i actually wrote this logic for
cable-testing, then scrapped it because the code [without any
framework around it] just looked bad, and like it was asking to cause

with this minimal framework in place, cable-testing looks like a neat
feature [and neatly implemented];
and it took me less than a day to write and test it;
so, thank you for this :)
