This doesn't look correct to me. This function is only called when
ethtool -A is used to change the flow control settings. This is not
the place to be configuring flow control, as flow control is
negotiated with the link partner.

The final resolved flow control settings are available in
mvpp2_mac_link_up() via the tx_pause and rx_pause parameters.

What also concerns me is whether flow control is supported in the
existing driver at all, given this patch set. If it isn't supported
without the firmware's help, then we should _not_ be negotiating flow
control with the link partner unless we actually support it, so the
Pause and Asym_Pause bits in mvpp2_phylink_validate() should be
cleared.
