[Letux-kernel] [PATCH v2] net: davicom: dm9000: allow to pass MAC address through mac_addr module parameter

The MIPS Ingenic CI20 board is shipped with a quite old u-boot
(ci20-v2013.10 see https://elinux.org/CI20_Dev_Zone). This passes
the MAC address through dm9000.mac_addr=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
kernel module parameter to give the board a fixed MAC address.

This is not processed by the dm9000 driver which assigns a random
MAC address on each boot, making DHCP assign a new IP address
each time.

So we add a check for the mac_addr module parameter as a last
resort before assigning a random one. This mechanism can also
be used outside of u-boot to provide a value through modprobe
config.

To parse the MAC address in a new function get_mac_addr() we
use an copy adapted from the ksz884x.c driver which provides
the same functionality.
