Description

We'd like to add support to i40e for the MAC_CAPAB_TRANSCEIVER functionality. At this time, firmware doesn't provide us a good way to understand and read the i2c bus, so we cannot implement the read interface at this time. While the hardware does allow us to read the transceiver information, that requires bringing down the link and it was not considered a worthwhile approach, especially as a firmware based approach will be provided in the future.
