What i'm getting at is you say you support
ETHTOOL_LINK_MODE_100baseFX_Full_BIT &
ETHTOOL_LINK_MODE_100baseFX_Half_BIT. If there is no auto neg in FX
mode, i'm questioning how these two different modes code be used? I'm
guessing the PHY defaults to ETHTOOL_LINK_MODE_100baseFX_Full_BIT? How
does the user set it to ETHTOOL_LINK_MODE_100baseFX_Half_BIT?

Correct. Maybe all you need to do is point me at the code in the
driver which actually sets the PHY into half duplex in FX mode when
the user asks for it. Is it just clearing BMCR_FULLDPLX?
