I'm not following (the memcpy() is replaced by ether_addr_copy()). I only
see ah->av.eth.mac being read from (not written to). And the destinations
are {s,d}mac_h:

ah->av.eth.s_mac   -> sqp->ud_header.eth.smac_h (s_mac to smac_h: 6 bytes)
ah->av.eth.mac     -> sqp->ud_header.eth.dmac_h (mac to dmac_h: 6 bytes)

after that I see:

ah->av.eth.mac     -> &ctrl->srcrb_flags16[0] (2 bytes)
ah->av.eth.mac + 2 -> ctrl->imm (4 bytes)

The last two copies mac again in pieces, but I don't know what any of
this is actually used for, which I what I assume you're asking about. :)
