Hi, all

         'speed_capa' in struct rte_eth_dev_info is defined as follows:

uint32_t speed_capa;  /**< Supported speeds bitmap (ETH_LINK_SPEED_). */


       Most PMD drivers use this field to report the speeds capability 
supported by the device to the upper-layer app.

But it seems that few NICs report their auto-negotiation capability 
through this field. If NIC also uses it to report

their auto-negotiation capability through this field, and should set it 
to ETH_LINK_SPEED_AUTONEG(0) based on

the definition of ETH_LINK_SPEED_xxx. In this case, it conflicts the 
report of the speeds capability .


I don't know how to correctly report the auto-negotiation capability of 
the device. Thanks for your reply.
