> The mvneta controller can handle speeds up to 2500Mbps on the SGMII
> interface. This relies on serdes configuration, the lane must be
> configured at 3.125Gbps and we can't use in-band autoneg at that speed.
> The main issue when supporting that speed on this particular controller
> is that the link partner can send ethernet frames with a shortened
> preamble, which if not explicitly enabled in the controller will cause
> unexpected behaviours.
> This was tested on Armada 385, with the comphy configuration done in
> bootloader.
