I would not do this. If the requirements for rate adaptation are not
fulfilled, you should turn off rate adaptation.

A MAC which knows rate adaptation is going on can help out, by not
advertising 10Half, 100Half etc. Autoneg will then fail for modes
where rate adaptation does not work.

The MAC should also be declaring what sort of pause it supports, so
disable rate adaptation if it does not have async pause.
