tg3: Add support for link flap avoidance
This patch and the following two patches add support for link flap avoidance by maintaining the link on power down. This feature is required for management capable devices to have the management connection uninterrupted on driver reload, reboot and interface up/down. The other pros of this feature are - It speeds up boot up time by several seconds as DHCP addresses can be acquired faster. - It avoids lengthy Spanning Tree delay. On powerup the hardware brings up the phy with default settings. If the link is not up, the management software configures the phy to gigabit and starts autonegotiate. Subsequently, as long as the link is up, the driver and management refrain from resetting and/or changing any configuration that the link depends on. The LNK_FLAP_AVOID setting is an NVRAM user configurable bit and is disabled by default. If this setting is enabled, we skip powering down the phy and resetting it. A second NVRAM setting is 1G_ON_VAUX_OK (off by default). This adds support for gigabit link speed when device is on auxiliary power.
