We'd like ixgbe to implement support for MAC_CAPAB_TRANSCEIVER. As part of this, I discovered that ixgbe does not actually update the phy information when it's checking the SFP. We'll also take care of this, allowing the driver to always have updated information about what is actually plugged in. Without that, it would snapshot the sfp information at start up, which may not be correct, especially if one is not plugged in.
