Latest commit 2d79b20 Apr 16, 2017 @mcb30 mcb30 [intel] Do not enable ASDE on i350 backplane NIC
On most Intel NICs, Auto-Speed Detection Enable (ASDE) can be used to
automatically detect the correct link speed by sampling the link using
the internal PHY.  This feature is automatically inhibited when not
appropriate for the physical link (e.g. when using internal SerDes
mode on the 8254x).

On the i350 datasheet ASDE is a reserved bit, but the relevant
auto-speed detection hardware appears still to be present.  However,
enabling ASDE on the i350 1000BASE-KX backplane NIC seems to cause an
immediate link failure.  It is possible that the auto-speed detection
hardware is still present, is not connected to a physical link, and is
not inhibited from being applied in this mode.

Work around this problem by adding an INTEL_NO_ASDE flag bit
(analogous to INTEL_NO_PHY_RST), and applying this for the i350
backplane NIC.
