sys/conf options sys/dev/netif/bge Makefile if_bge.c if_bgereg.h Log:
Create a kernel option BGE_FAKE_AUTONEG for IBM/Intel blade servers,
which should make the DNLK switch module work. IBM/Intel blade server
with Intel or AD switch modules should work without the kernel options
Obtained-from: FreeBSD
Submitted-by: Sepherosa Ziehau <sepherosa@xxxxxxxxx>

Please do not make this a kernel option, instead turn it into a sysctl. I do not like the idea of recompiling the kernel just so that some part of a driver available in GENERIC can be made working.

It's non-intuitive. We need to be dynamic. :-)
