It is an interesting question. I think the first thing to find out is,
what in userspace actually uses this. If it is a deprecated tool, i
would not spend the energy.

Probably a better interface is ethtool get_link_ksettings, and
set_link_ksettings.

$ /sbin/ethtool enp3s0
Settings for enp3s0:
Supported ports: [ TP MII ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
1000baseT/Full

You can set supported ports to HomePlug, and supported link modes to
10, AV, AV2, GREENPHY etc.

Is there a negotiation mechanism where different homeplug devices can
find out what they have in common and select a mode? That would be
very similar to Ethernet autoneg, so you can make use of the other
fields ethtool provides to show this information, etc.
