You can add that as just another element of the enum.

The link partner did not go quiet. You can only do cable tests if the
partner is not sending frames or pulses. You will find most PHYs have
some sort of error status for this. For the Marvell driver, this is
MII_VCT7_RESULTS_INVALID. In that case, the Marvell driver returns
ETHTOOL_A_CABLE_RESULT_CODE_UNSPEC.
