[802.3ae] MIB-II ifSpeed 32-bit limitation for 10G


The ifSpeed object defined in MIB-II's ifTable is 32-bits wide and so will
hold only upto 4.2 Gbits/s. This works fine for existing, relatively slower
topologies such as Fast Ethernet. However, due to the 32-bit constraint, it
cannot be used for 10 GBE.
Any suggestions on how to overcome this problem?
