Subject[PATCH net v2 2/2] net/ncsi: handle overflow when incrementing mac address
Date
Previously BMC's MAC address is calculated by simply adding 1 to the
last byte of network controller's MAC address, and it produces incorrect
result when network controller's MAC address ends with 0xFF.

The problem can be fixed by calling "net_addr_inc" function to increment
MAC address; besides, the MAC address is also validated before assigning
to BMC.

Fixes: cb10c7c0dfd9 ("net/ncsi: Add NCSI Broadcom OEM command")
