Description

There is a bunch of questionable old stuff in uts/common/io/rge/rge_ndd.c to allow the driver to be tuned through ndd(8). This is somewhat less than ideal; we have a proper mechanism for exposing things like auto-negotiation policy through link properties that one can tune with dladm(8) which should be used here instead. As a side effect, this makes rge the module depend on ip, which prevents its use early in boot if your boot archive does not contain drv/ip and all the required transitive dependencies.
