What does this mean? If it's using 1G hardware then it's a 1G port,
right? How can you configure a 1G port to be 10G?
Why is this compatible in addition to others (note that this implies
such ports are 100% backwards compatible with hardware that lacks the
new compatible)? You'd have the same compatible on rx and tx nodes (I'm
assuming this isn't applicable to oh)?
What are the implications of this that warrant adding a compatible?
