    This is similar to the 802.11 way.
    802.11 uses MAC_FMT and MAC_ARG.
    I think a common style is preferable.

    It's fine, but it increases the size of kernel image
    by up to ~100K. Using a common function, a stack
    automatic and "%s" in the printk decreases the size
    of the kernel.

    Strictly, not all MAC addresses are 6 byte.

    Maybe all the Ethernet/TR addresses should use the
    IEEE EUI48 designation? That feels a bit like the
    KiB/KB distinction, but it is technically correct.

    Would a patch with an DEV6_ADDR->EUI48 substitution
    be acceptable?
