1.2.0-rc7 duplex auto (autogenerated config) setting not accepted
Open, NormalPublicBUG

Description

installed a fresh 1.2.0-rc7 from scratch.
Wanted to set eth0 to dhcp and ran into this problem{F266406}
I just set the dhcp address
Vyos added the "duplex auto " itself but doesn't recognize the option during commit.

*update*
After looking further, it seems it did commit.
eth0 has an ipv4 address.
so the fuzz is just about the message during commit

*update II *
It seems this only happens to KVM with virtio NIC interface.
Know problem, only few will see this.

dmbaturin wrote on irc:
"People previously reported similar (luckily, harmless) issues with ethernet tools and virtio.
Since it lacks a PHY as such, ethtools diagnostics also fail to show anything useful there."

when i checked:
mii-tool eth0 -> SIOCGMIIPHY on 'eth0' failed: Operation not supported

dmbaturin again:
" wonder if we can add a check and wrap such errors in explanatory messages."

@fromport how to reproduce? Is this possible with VMWare ESXi? If now, which virtualisation tool to use for testing?
