SubjectRe: BCM54220: After the BCM54220 closes the auto-negotiation, the configuration forces the 1000M network port to be linked down all the time.

It is my understanding that the 1000BASE-T PHY requires peers to take on
asymmetric roles and that establishment of these roles requires
negotiation which occurs during auto-negotiation. Some PHYs may allow
manual programming of these roles, but it is not standardized and tools
like ethtool do not support manual specification of such details.

Therefore manual configuration of a 1000BASE-T link cannot be assumed to
work. If you want to "force" a gigabit link you should keep
auto-negotiation on and only advertise support for the speed you want.
