According to IEEE 802.3-2018:
"28.2.3.5 Remote fault sensing function

The Remote Fault function may indicate to the Link Partner that a fault
condition has occurred using the Remote Fault bit and, optionally, the Next
Page function
...
A Local Device may indicate it has sensed a fault to its Link Partner by
setting the Remote Fault bit in the Auto-Negotiation advertisement register and
renegotiating.

If the Local Device sets the Remote Fault bit to logic one, it may also use the
Next Page function to specify information about the fault that has occurred.
Remote Fault Message Page Codes have been specified for this purpose.
..."

If I see it correctly, there is no way to notify about remote fault when
the link is up. The remote fault bit is transferred withing Link Code
Word as part of FLP burst. At least in this part of specification.

We understand the spec that the Base Link Code Word and the optional (extended)
next pages are only send during autoneg. The local PHY capabilities (link
speed, duplex, remote fault...) are communicated via the Base Link Code Word.
So from our point of view it seems local to put the next pages next to the
local PHY capabilities. If the user space wants to set a next page, the
interface could be similar to remote fault, but we need to transfer more a
whole page, not just a single bit :) via netlink.

So receiving remote fault information via linkstate and send remote fault via
ksetting?

The next logical question is, if a remote fault is RX'ed (potentially with a
reason) who will react on this. There might be different policies on how to
react on same reason.

ACK!
