Description

At the moment ixgbe doesn't support 1GbE over single-mode fiber. This patch adds support for 1000BASE-LX (up to 5km range) and 1000BASE-LX10 (up to 10km range) SFP modules. Original patch (I just ported it):
http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/238151/
This patch was tested on a pair of 82599-based controllers.
