I had a FreeBSD router with 9 21140 channels and a number of hosts
connected directly using 21140 based cards too (Cogent EM110/EM440
After booting it could happen that links were established with 10MBit
also the interfaces were set to fixed rates.
No - it doesn't wonder me anymore - I've learned to live with that.
Also todays NIC prices helps to not waste time with such troubles
