Local fix

Problem summary

  • In DataPower Gateway diagnostics mode, the NIC online self-test
    behavior is inconsistent between eth20, eth21 and other ethernet
    interfaces.  When the cables are connected, eth20 and eth21
    online test fail and the LED is OFF which is not expected.
    
    With this fix, all interfaces test results are consistent, the
    online test succeeds and the LED is ON when the cables are
    connected, the test fails if no cables connected.
