Seems slight issue with an intel X540T2 card at 10Gb, we have a
Fujitsu X0440 10/40Gb switch, however the card only seems to negotiate
ifconfig -m ix0
ix0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether a0:36:9f:0e:ae:8c
        inet6 fe80::a236:9fff:fe0e:ae8c%ix0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        media: Ethernet autoselect (1000baseT <full-duplex>)
        status: active
        supported media:
                media autoselect
                media 10Gbase-T
# ifconfig ix0 media 10Gbase-T
ifconfig: SIOCSIFMEDIA (media): Invalid argument
# ifconfig ix0 media autoselect

and it doesnt seem to support the ifconfig ix0 media 10Gbase-T any ideas
