10baseT/100baseTX autonegotiation is working properly; however, ifconfig *always* reports "10baseT half-duplex" in the text description of the media, even though the switch/hub says it's 100baseTX half-duplex (ifconfig also incorrectly reports "no carrier").

# ifconfig be0
        media: Ethernet 100baseTX (10baseT half-duplex)
        status: no carrier
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
