I tested the latest version on CN9132-DB with 2 10G ports bridged and
connected to the packet generator. Under load the interfaces were
capable of generating the pause frames, so all seems to work as
expected. There is also no regression neither with the feature
disabled, nor on Armada boards (I checked MacchiatoBin and Armada 7040
DB).

I added my comments in the patches.

BTW for that I had to enable the ports in device tree:
