Due to the insufficient error handling Intel X552 SFP+ (8086:15ac)
will fail to initialize on boot when no modules are plugged in and
become completely unusable afterwards.

I have discovered this bug on OpenBSD when updating our driver so
there's a chance that this is not an issue on FreeBSD (I haven't
tested), so you may consider this just a heads up.

I'm attaching the fix that makes it operational on OpenBSD.  This
chunk is based on the similar one for 82599.  Setting PHY type to
"ixgbe_phy_none" will come in handy during "ifconfig up" since
ixgbe_init[_locked] will re-do the PHY/SFP initialization if the
PHY type has been previously set to "none".
