And it doesn't compile:

http://kisskb.ellerman.id.au/kisskb/buildresult/5752157/

drivers/net/ethernet/cirrus/mac89x0.c: In function ‘set_mac_address’:
drivers/net/ethernet/cirrus/mac89x0.c:597: warning: dereferencing
‘void *’ pointer
drivers/net/ethernet/cirrus/mac89x0.c:597: error: request for member
‘sa_data’ in something not a structure or union
drivers/net/ethernet/cirrus/mac89x0.c:600: warning: dereferencing
‘void *’ pointer
drivers/net/ethernet/cirrus/mac89x0.c:600: error: request for member
‘sa_data’ in something not a structure or union
drivers/net/ethernet/cirrus/mac89x0.c:595: warning: unused variable ‘saddr’

No patch included as I don't think this should have been applied as-is.
