We are seeing interoperability issues with switches when 2.5G and 5G are
advertised by default, so default to off.

LINUX ONLY:

We will need to add a note to our README on how to enable 2.5G and 5G.
The netwmask is a combination of:

0x020	1000baseT Full
0x800000000000	2500baseT Full
0x1000000000000	5000baseT Full
0x1000	10000baseT Full

Combine the two into the advertisement flags:
ethtool -s advertise ethX <mask value>

This is only for 'X550' device, right? If so can you please clarify this in the
patch title and the commit log?

I can see this is Linux only so we can drop from commit log, but do we need to
document something similar for DPDK?

The content related to linux only will be dropped from the commit log.
In addition, regarding the doc, this part is not the content of the limitation, just off the default value, 
it is no need to document something in DPDK.
