> This is the i40e equivalent of commit c762dff24c06 ("ixgbe: Look up MAC
> address in Open Firmware or IDPROM").
> As with that fix, attempt to look up the MAC address in Open Firmware
> on systems that support it, and use IDPROM on SPARC if no OF address
> is found.
> In the case of the i40e there is an assumption that the default mac
> address has already been set up as the primary mac filter on probe,
> so if this filter is obtained from the Open Firmware or IDPROM, an
> explicit write is needed via i40e_aq_mac_address_write() and
> i40e_aq_add_macvlan() invocation.
