Subject[PATCH] pcnet32.c: MAC address may be in CSR registers
All,

<aside>
Thomas Bogendoerfer is listed as maintainer.
Richard, I know you've done some work with this driver so I thought you
might be interested.
Alan, I'd like to see this find its way into the official version(s), so
feedback would be appreciated if you don't apply it. (In your copious
spare time, of course. ;) )
</aside>

I'm dealing with an AMD chip that does not have the station address in
the PROM at the base address, but resides in the "Physical Address
Registers" in the chip (thanks to the bootloader in my case). This
patch makes the driver try those registers if the station address read
from the PROM is 00:00:00:00:00:00.
I think others dealing with similar setups may find this helpful. The
other lance-derived drivers might benefit from a similar patch, but I
don't have that hardware for testing.

(The diff is against 2.2.18 and applies cleanly.)

If this is not acceptible or could be improved, please reply with
feedback.

TIA,

Eli
