If you have the switch the bay ports are hardwired to autoneg. I've never
had an optical passthrough (OPM) to see if it works correctly in that
situation. (I didn't know the OPMs even existed until December, then they
showed up on a price sheet I was looking at. Explained a lot about the
design of the system.)
