Description

Add toggle on/off function for Flow Control on interfaces as alternative to adding lines to loader.conf.local

Requires:
Driver
Correct OID

Reasons:
Larger amounts of traffic and higher traffic throughput can be limited by flow control unnecessarily, if a link is saturated the packet will be dropped in any case, there is no reason for the NIC to restrict traffic otherwise.

Ideally flow control should be turned off by default as it can be turned on when needed.
