Bug#411161: netcfg: Ability to disable autoneg

Package: netcfg
Version: 1.31
Severity: wishlist

It would be nice if it were possible to disable autonegociation and force
the media type from netcfg. It is not uncommon with switches that ports
are forced to 100baseTx-FD because autoneg just works badly. In such
cases, the card with autoneg enabled sets itself in 100baseTx-HD,
resulting in a very bad network performance.
