Re: [802.3ae] test pattern in cls49.2.8 vs. cls52.9, etc.

Wei Wang,

You can get AnAiAnAi or BnBiBnBi from AnAiBnBi by making the
programmable seed registers identical. You can also select
between 0 and LF for the data input, regardless of the value
of the seeds.

The test pattern generater in Clause 49 is a generic one that
supports different seeds in A & B or identical ones. The user
can change these as desired.

This is not consistent with Clause52.9.1 and Table 52-21, which says the pattern is AnAiAnAi with input data of all-zero, or seed BnBiBnBi with input data of LF. In earlier version (e.g. D4.0) they agree to each other, but lately Clause 52.9.1 was revised. Which one should an implementer follow?
