Need support for new link speeds in mac_ether
NBASE-T is on the near horizon with 2.5 & 5 Gbps. (In fact, backplane implementations running illumos at 2.5Gbps already exist with igb.)
New drivers are forth coming with 40 Gbps, and perhaps even 100 Gbps in the near future. Both 40 and 100 Gbps are standardized now, with numerous implementations available in the field.
Future steps may add 25 and 50 Gbps ethernet, but the standards for that are still evolving, AFAIK no actual hardware with support for those speeds is forthcoming for illumos in the immediate future.
