Subject: [PATCH 5.8 38/70] ibmvnic: fix ibmvnic_set_mac

From: Lijun Pan <ljp@...ux.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 8fc3672a8ad3e782bac80e979bc2a2c10960cbe9 ]

Jakub Kicinski brought up a concern in ibmvnic_set_mac().
ibmvnic_set_mac() does this:

	ether_addr_copy(adapter->mac_addr, addr->sa_data);
	if (adapter->state != VNIC_PROBED)
		rc = __ibmvnic_set_mac(netdev, addr->sa_data);

So if state == VNIC_PROBED, the user can assign an invalid address to
adapter->mac_addr, and ibmvnic_set_mac() will still return 0.

The fix is to validate ethernet address at the beginning of
ibmvnic_set_mac(), and move the ether_addr_copy to
the case of "adapter->state != VNIC_PROBED".

Fixes: c26eba03e407 ("ibmvnic: Update reset infrastructure to support tunable parameters")
