Give Feedback Reading NRZ/PAM4 Eye Height

Use attribute code 0x002C to read the NRZ/PAM4 eye height.

For NRZ, all six of the eye heights below return the same value, so you can use any one of them to get the eye height.

For PAM4, the six eye heights return different values because PAM4 uses all six.

The eye height is returned on registers {0x89[7:0],0x88[7:0]}.
