My understanding is that Ethernet flow control (what ever its 
802.1mumble might be?) is negotiated when the link is brought-up, and 
that both sides must agree before it will be active.  So, if you (the 
end station) do not want flow control, you can simply not accept it 
during link-up.

Under Linux, the ethtool utility can be used to affect the configuration 
of "pause" (the name coming from the name of the frames used by flow 
control - "pause frames" if I recall correctly)
