You also want 1000baseX_Full here - the connected PHY could have a fiber
interface on it.

I don't know enough about this interface type to comment whether it
should support 1000baseX_Full - if this is connected to a PHY that may
support fiber, then it ought to set it.

Both should be set.  The reasoning here is that if you have a
Fiberchannel 4Gbaud SFP plugged in and connected directly to the
MAC, it can operate at either 2500Base-X or 1000Base-X.  If we
decide to operate at 2500Base-X, then PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_2500BASEX
will be chosen.  Otherwise, PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_1000BASEX will be
used.

The user can use ethtool to control which interface mode is used
by adjusting the advertise mask and/or placing the interface in
manual mode and setting the speed directly.  This will change
the PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_xxxxBASEX (via phylink_helper_basex_speed())
between the two settings.

If we lose 2500baseX_Full when 1000Base-X is selected, the user
will not be able to go back to 2500Base-X mode.

Yes, it's a little confusing and has slightly different rules
from the other modes - partly due to phylink_helper_basex_speed().
These are the only interface modes that we dynamically switch
between depending on the settings that the user configures via
ethtool.
