Well, this hasn't worked, but not for the obvious reason. Register 0x14
is documented as read/write. Bits 15:6 are reserved, bit 5 is the
smart speed enable, 4:2 configures the attempts, bit 1 sets the link
stable condition, bit 0 is reserved.

Writing 0x80c results in the register reading back 0x82c. Writing
0x800 results in the same. Writing 0 reads back 0x2c. Writing 0xffff
seems to prevent packets being passed - and at that point I lost
control so I couldn't see what the result was.

There is nothing in the data sheet which suggests that there is any
gating of this register. So it looks like we're stuck with smartspeed
enabled.

So, I think there's only two remaining ways forward - to revert commit
5502b218e001 to restore the old behaviour, read back the advertisement
from the PHY along with the rest of the status, as I've previously
stated. It means that phylib will modify phydev->advertising at
random points, just as it modifies phydev->lp_advertising, so locking
may become an issue. The revert approach is probably best until we
have something working along those lines.
