SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 07/10] cisco/enic: use eth_hw_addr_random() instead of random_ether_addr()
From: Danny Kukawka <>
Date: Fri, 17 Feb 2012 16:43:28 +0100

> Use dev_hw_addr_random() instead of calling random_ether_addr()
> to set addr_assign_type correctly to NET_ADDR_RANDOM.
> Couldn't replace random_ether_addr() in enic_probe() since
> enic_set_mac_addr() is used which would reset addr_assign_type.
> Instead set addr_assign_type directly to NET_ADDR_RANDOM in
> case of random mac after call enic_set_mac_addr().
> Reset the state to NET_ADDR_PERM as soon as the MAC get
> changed via .ndo_set_mac_address.
> v2: use bitops, adapt to eth_hw_addr_random(), add a comment
