    coccinelle is a nifty, better sed, tool. Thanks Julia et al.

    Looks like it.

    Do you want a similar patch/patches for drivers/net?

    If I break it out by nominal driver/maintainer,
    it'll be a highish number of low density patches.

    $ git grep -w compare_ether_addr drivers/net | wc -l
    $ git grep -w -l compare_ether_addr drivers/net | wc -l

    Maybe just a single patch?

    Also the compare_ether_addr_64bits function is
    still used a couple dozen times. Maybe another
    patch for those? ether_addr_equal_64bits?
