Interesting ethernet link status / state issue
Here's one I've never seen before:
The important bits are:
ifconfig genet0, status shows no carrier
ifconfig genet0 down
ifconfig genet0, staus shows active, media shows 1000baseT
This is a Raspberry Pi 400 running NetBSD 10.0_RC1 from 30-November-2023
sources plugged directly in to an Arris / Nokia BGW320-500 NAT router /
wifi / fiber ONT device. This device has tons of issues, so I haven't so
far been surprised when devices sometimes don't come up after reboot.
I also had issues with a NanoPi Neo's ethernet and switched to a USB cdce*
ethernet, which made things work only slightly better, but I had no local
serial console, so I didn't diagnose this before.
Leaving "media autoselect" out of ifconfig.* seems to make things work
better, and at very least doesn't lead to what happened above. Note that
I've only tried restarting after removing that a few times, and the
machines and network are not close to where I am.
