Description

As part of the work going on in RFD 88 and RFD 89, we'd like to add a new MAC capability, MAC_CAPAB_LED, that provides a means for controlling and toggling the LEDs on data links. This'll add general logic to MAC and DLD as well as a private command /usr/lib/dl/dlled to allow us to control them for the time being. This'll allow operators to be able to use the system while we work towards figuring out the right way to add this information into FM's topology.

To test this, I used the dlled program on various systems that had cables plugged in and off. I used all three modes across all there drivers on different revisions and chipsets.
