ZII Devel Rev. B is actually broken, should not work, but does
somehow. The SFF 3 and 4 are connected to switch ports which cannot do
1000Base-X. They are using something like SGMII. So the link partner
needs to be very forgiving. But it happens that the link partners i'm
testing against are forgiving. SFF 1 and 2 are generally not
populated. If they are, i think you need to remove a resistor, to make
them work. But they are then connected to a switch port which does use
1000Base-X.

Now, since ZII devel B is technically broken, i would not be too
unhappy if "sfp" phandle implies managed = "in-band-status" by
default, so long as we can still use fixed-link somehow.
