    Subject[RFC][PATCH 00/50] set addr_assign_type to NET_ADDR_RANDOM if a random mac address get assigned to a netdevice
    Date
    The information if a device has a random MAC address is exported
    to the userspace via /sys/class/net/*/addr_assign_type, which
    export net_device->addr_assign_type.

    Currently only a few driver really use dev_hw_addr_random() to
    set addr_assign_type correctly to NET_ADDR_RANDOM.

    This patch change the drivers which set random addresses to
    change also addr_assign_type to NET_ADDR_RANDOM.

    To reflect if the MAC was changed from userspace via SIOCSIFHWADDR,
    which means it's no longer a random address set by the kernel,
    this patch remove NET_ADDR_RANDOM from addr_assign_type in this
    case.

    With this patch tools from userspace can now detect devices with
    random MAC addresses and change them to persistent addresses if
    needed (as e.g. in case of smsc95xx on PandaBoard).

    Maybe it makes sense to introduce a new state for addr_assign_type
    to reflect the fact, that the MAC address was changed via a ioctl
    from user space, e.g, with NET_ADDR_USERSPACE ?
