I like the idea. Let's make this the first use case where a lot of
people will want to have the device tree on ARM. The patch to the
driver to check for a mac-address property is trivial, and we
can probably come up with a decent way of parsing the device
tree for USB devices, after all there is an existing spec for
it (http://playground.sun.com/1275/bindings/usb/usb-1_0.ps).

[PATCH] net/smscx5xx: demonstrate use of device tree for mac address
This takes the MAC address for smsc75xx/smsc95xx USB network devices
from a the device tree. This is required to get a usable persistent
address on the popular beagleboard, whose hardware designers
accidentally forgot that an ethernet device really requires an a
MAC address to be functional.

The smsc75xx and smsc95xx drivers are just two copies of the
same code, so better fix both.

Not tested!
