Of the fact that it doesn't reset the phy when you hard code the
speed/duplex setting?  (I have a patch for this.)

This means if you have a switch set for auto, and you then hard set it
for 100mb/full, it will work (since the phy never got reset) at
autoselected speed of 100mb/full until the cable gets pulled, or the
switch reboots, at which time the switch will renegotiate to 100mb/half,
and you're still at 100mb/full...
