Afaik waiting for idle frames is not required by any standard. In fact
this feature of the XLG MAC caused a risk that after dropping the link
during data transfer it would never go up again until remote peer
stops it.

I tested it on 3 different boards with SerDes directly connected to
the SFP cage and I'm also not aware of any reporte about
noise-triggered false link interrupts in XLG MAC (proprietary Marvell
mvpp2x driver did not use waiting 3 idle frames feature). I'd rather
assume the MAC is not vulnerable to it, and only properly established
link can trigger an event.

Best regards,
Marcin
