Maybe it's partially a lacking in the existing documentation, but what
does the "name" and the "nvmem_name" mean here? AFAICT, "nvmem_name" is
akin to a provider identifier; and "name" is a key to match with the
consumer. It feels like this should be in either the header / kerneldoc
or this file. Or maybe both.

Does this mean there can only be a single "mac-address" cell in the
system? I have systems where there are multiple MACs provided in flash
storage, and we need to map them to ethernet0 and ethernet1. Is that
supported here?
