Fibre does not perform any sort of auto-negotiation. I assume you have
an SFP connected? When using PHYLINK, the sfp driver will get the
supported baud rate from SFP EEPROM to determine what speed could be
used. However, there is currently no mainline support for having a
chain MAC-PHY-SFP. For that you need Russells out of tree patches.
