Oh, openwrt. That means I need to re-understand their build system to
advise how to do it. I only know the mainline kernel.

Mainline has never had "SUPPORTED_interfaces" in phylink.c, so I'm
wondeirng what that's about. I'm also wondering what other changes
there are to it. I'm also wondering whether the behaviour you're
seeing is somehow special to openwrt. Too many things to wonder about
and effectively means there's too much that I don't know.

Therefore, I don't think I can help you, and I don't think I can
possibly accept your proposal for this quirk. For mainline, as far
as I'm aware, it will cause these modules to regress when they are
in the manufacturer default state when used with a host that supports
both 1000base-X and 2500base-X.

FTTP is here! 80Mbps down 10Mbps up. Decent connectivity at last!
