I've finally been able to do some further diagnosis (with a 'scope).
It would appear that the network adapter had PHY polling enabled,
which meant that it overwrote the PHYs advertisement register
during negotiation. I thought I'd checked that scenario, but alas
clearing the PHY poll enable bit on its own doesn't stop it polling!

I'll send a revert for the commit shortly.

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line in suburbia: sync at 12.1Mbps down 622kbps up
According to 11.9Mbps down 500kbps up
