We found a bug on the 64 port x 100gig model that if you insert a quad 
twinax 10gig fanout cable in many of the ports it will trigger a reboot.

Some select ports are okay and supported, but the ones that are not would 
trigger a reset. Issue was immediate to the cable being inserted. No idea 
if this was patched or not.
