Is auto mdix supported?  I couldn't find it anywhere in the community support.  I see that some of the hardware (Edgecore) supports it, but wasn't sure if Cumulus Linux does.

While the feature is supported and works, it is not a configurable option in Cumulus Linux.

To add to Scott's answer... Obviously it is only applicable for twisted-pair copper, and ethtool supports configuring it, however it is just statically set to "MDIX(Auto, Normal)" on the ASIC port.
