try adding " link_config" to the list... ;)

The link-config plugin adds three options to the interface section.
Each of them is a numeric value, followed by an (optional) list of mac
addresses. Without any mac-address, the plugin sets a default value
for an interface, with the address(es) it sets a value for a certain
layer-2 point-2-point connection.

You should be able to see the values you set with this plugin with the
"layer2 neigh" or "layer2 net" command through the telnet interface.

Example configuration for interface-wide configuration:

     rx_bitrate    1G
     tx_bitrate    100M
     signal         -20
