Symptom: L1 Port creation fails when 40g and 100g SFPs are plugged into certain combination of front ports. Conditions: After discussing with broadcom, it is confirmed that PM (Port Macro)#1 on NC57 has hardware limitation where usage of 2 PLLs (in NIF PM #1) which requires two VCO/PLL is not allowed. This means that all the serdes lanes(8 lanes) in PM#1 can operate at single speed and can't operate at different speeds. This limitation applies to NC57-SE, but not on NC55 as in NC55 all the lanes of PM#1 are connected to a single front port. So front ports 0,1 and similarly front ports 14,15 can operate on below modes - both at 40g speed - both at 100g speed - one in 40g and other at 4x10g - one in 100g and other at 4x25g If we enable these 2 ports under different port speed we likely to hit interface down, flap or other errors.
