please replace outdated mii-tool package 1.65 with current one 2.10 from
net-tools package from Sourceforge where it is currently developed.
mii-tool 1.65 from freshmeat site (which Effective 2014-06-18 Freecode
is no longer being updated) built for SUSE packman lies that any gigabit
card is 100mbit only: e.g. Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller
capabilities: 100baseTx-FD 100baseTx-HD 10baseT-FD 10baseT-HD

mii-tool 2.10 from Fedora 29 (net-tools package built from Sourceforge
net-tools source) has support for detecting gigabit cards and many other
fixes and updates.
capabilities: 1000baseT-FD 100baseTx-FD 100baseTx-HD 10baseT-FD

SUSE builds fresh net-tools package from latest Sourceforge git already
but building mii-tool is excluded in SUSE so packman should take it and
build mii-tool only from this package to get rid of outdated and buggy
