I mean, that is the point. Users will surely have to tune it
themselves, second guessing the driver in any case. So having hard
coded constants in the driver is useless.

Probably even the tuned values will differ by link speed, so having
the per-link speed constants in the driver doesn't help either.

(And yes, linuxptp should offer configuration variables per link
speed, monitor actual link speed, and switch automatically. So far no
one is demanding that loudly)

Thanks,
Richard
