My interpretation is that the Clause 81 RS (40Gb/s and 100Gb/s RS)
does not support unidirectional operation. Clause 66 is very specific about the
PCSs that do support unidirectional operation.

Subject: [802.3BA] question on clause 81 link fault signaling
According to clause 81, the
behavioral of RS link fault signaling is the same as it is for Clause 46.
However, Clause 46 link fault
signaling specification may be modified by Clause 66 for unidirectional
Does it mean that 40Gb/s and 100
Gb/s RS also supports unidirectional operation?
