* Search the device tree for the best MAC address to use. 'mac-address' is
* checked first, because that is supposed to contain to "most recent" MAC
* address. If that isn't set, then 'local-mac-address' is checked next,
* because that is the default address. If that isn't set, then the obsolete
* 'address' is checked, just in case we're using an old device tree.
* Note that the 'address' property is supposed to contain a virtual address of
* the register set, but some DTS files have redefined that property to be the
* MAC address.
* All-zero MAC addresses are rejected, because those could be properties that
* exist in the device tree, but were not set by U-Boot. For example, the
* DTS could define 'mac-address' and 'local-mac-address', with zero MAC
* addresses. Some older U-Boots only initialized 'local-mac-address'. In
* this case, the real MAC is in 'local-mac-address', and 'mac-address' exists
* but is all zeros.
