ixgbe with X540-T2 has been flooding syslog with messages
So, I have flow-control set to its default  in /kernel/drv/ixgbe.conf.
I'm getting literally thousands of messages of:
[code]ixgbe: [ID 801725 kern.info] NOTICE: ixgbe: Flow Control = NONE.[/code]
I don't even have ixgbe1 or ixgbe2 plumbed at the moment. [Having it plumbed does not change this behavior.]
OpenIndiana 151a7 with a built copy of illumos-gate as of Feb 17th - e.g. up to commit "3561 arc_meta_limit should be exposed via kstats "
The other side of the link does support flow control.
It seems like it should be a simple fix and is probably some odd behavior involving having the two PHYs on one card, but I wanted to report it before I delved into it further.

So, as danmcd pointed out, this is because I have built my kernel with DEBUG.
That said, am I mistaken to think this shouldn't be quite so loquacious? The card's ports are both up and in use, so I'm not sure why that codepath is tripping over and over...
