How can I allow unsupported Ethernet SFPs?

A common use for this would be adding LW Long Haul SFPs for single mode optical runs.

Open console tools with ctrl-alt-t

Select "Modify driver options"

allow_unsupported_sfp; and change it from 0 to 1.

set: "allow_unsupported_sfp = 1,1"

Use the following options, depending on the number of ports:

1 port=1
2 ports=1,1
4 ports=1,1,1,1
