Re: [EFM] 1 Gbps != 999.9 Mbps


I guess it might be described as good if you define "good" to mean making 
use of a mechanism that was defined for one purpose, and applying it to 
another purpose for which it was neither defined nor suitable. As far as I 
am aware, 802.3x wasn't intended to be used to provide rate-matching 
between dissimilar speed links.
