Subject: linux-next: build failure after merge of the net-next tree

Hi all,

After merging the net-next tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc
ppc64_defconfig) failed like this:

drivers/net/ethernet/ibm/ehea/ehea_main.c: In function 'ehea_setup_single_port':
drivers/net/ethernet/ibm/ehea/ehea_main.c:2989:23: error: passing argument 2 of 'eth_hw_addr_set' from incompatible pointer type [-Werror=incompatible-pointer-types]

cc1: some warnings being treated as errors

Caused by commit

  a96d317fb1a3 ("ethernet: use eth_hw_addr_set()")

I have used the net-next tree from next-20211001 for today.
