Link speed of virtual function is detected as default speed(100Mbps, half-duplex).
Before checking VF link, get_link_status must be set.

Checking link status
PMD: ixgbe_check_for_rst_vf(): ixgbe_check_for_rst_vf
PMD: ixgbe_check_for_rst_vf(): ixgbe_check_for_rst_vf
Port 0 Link Up - speed 100 Mbps - half-duplex

This patch is actually a workaround to the problem. By setting
get_link_status just before calling ixgbe_check_link defeats the whole
purpose of the variable and results in _always_ getting the link
status. I think that this patch should be superseded by the following
