Since the patches were (mostly) to phy routines, I tried booting with
'disable igphy'.  It fell back to ukphy and *claims* to have negotiated
GigE.  The lights on the switch suggest otherwise, and the speed is
more indicative of a 100BaseT connection.  I'll try it again at home,
on a switch with better lights, and will see what happens.
