> The PHY type value for unrecognized PHYs and cables was changed based on
> firmware version number. Newer hardware use lower firmware version
> numbers and this was causing some PHYs to be identified as type 0x16
> instead of 0xe (unknown).
> 
> Without this patch, newer card will incorrectly identify unknown PHYs and
> cables.
> 
> This change adds hardware type to the check for firmware version so the PHY
> type is reported correctly.
