You can try 'modinfo ixgbe' to query your actual installed version to see
all the parameters it knows about.

I see on one of my hosts
# modinfo ixgbe
filename:
/lib/modules/4.15.0-54-generic/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/intel/ixgbe/ixgbe.ko
version:        5.1.0-k
...
parm:           allow_unsupported_sfp:Allow unsupported and untested SFP+
modules on 82599-based adapters (uint)

And you can check the exact release notes for your version to see the
allowed values for that parameter.

IME, you may have some kind of incompable cable/optic anyway; see if you
can try a different one.

Regards,
Alex
