in reading the post, it sounded to me like he had special code in the driver so that if there was no eeprom with the MAC address, he would generate it from the cpuid.

yes, it would be nice for the code to look in the device tree to see if there is a MAC address provided.

but if there isn't, he shouldn't have special case code in that one driver to calculate the MAC, he should call the general case code to handle the case where there is no MAC (and come to think of it, that general case code should probably be what is taught to look in the device tree for the MAC)
