I think we can ignore this one for the purposes of merging this patch
set, since this seems to be specific to this setup.  Neither 1000BaseT
nor 1000BaseX fit very well, but we have to choose something.

I think GMII can be connected to a PHY that can convert to 1000BaseX, so
should probably include that here too.

Thanks.
