It'd be good to have a Fixes tag, if it's worth going to the net tree.

We have eth_addr_dec(), perhaps it'd be good to add an eth_addr_inc()
equivalent?  (I'm not sure if it'd have to be in net-next, it's a tiny
function, and OK for net for my taste, but I had been wrong before).

If I'm allowed to be paranoid I'd also advise checking the resulting
MAC is a valid ethernet unicast addr.
