    Subject[PATCH 0/8] validate MAC address before call .ndo_set_mac_address
    Validate the given MAC address directly in dev_set_mac_address()
    if a .ndo_validate_addr function is available before calling
    the .ndo_set_mac_address function.

    Changed .ndo_validate_addr to take a second parameter containing
    a sockaddr struct to be checked instead of the net_device dev_addr.
    The behaviour of .ndo_validate_addr is now: if the second parameter
    is NULL the net_device->dev_addr gets validate, if != NULL
    the given parameter/sockaddr gets validated instead.

    This patch series include adaptations for some drivers which
    use .ndo_set_mac_address functions directly - to prevent double
    checks and to enable validations via .ndo_validate_addr.

    If these patches get accepted, an other series will follow
    to cleanup the validation checks in the .ndo_set_mac_address

    Note: resend for ML's
