I tested few more cards:

- two 100 Mb/s Realtek 8139C and 8139D with 8139too driver:
  driver sets carrier on soon enough and slave starts with "up" and
  stays that way (same as r8169)

- 1 Gb/s Intel Pro/1000PT (82572EI) with e1000e driver:
  essentially the same as igb, driver is slow and patch prevents the
  up -> down -> up sequence by starting the slave in "down" state

- 100 Mb/s Intel (?) cards with DECchip Tulip 21142/3, tulip driver:
  card/driver either doesn't set the flag properly or is extremely slow
  with up -> down transition so that the state was "up" all the time
  no matter what the real link state was

I'll resend v3 with fixed style problem in a moment.
