I think const unsigned char *addr should be const u8 *addr
ssize_t? shouldn't it be size_t?
Indexing buf by int len is unchecked.
That could lead to unintended buffer overruns.
Maybe add a buflen argument and use snprintf?

I had a patch that added some type-safety to print_mac
and prevented this unintended buffer overrun.

It seems it wasn't applied.

Subject: Re: [PATCH net-2.6.24] introduce MAC_FMT/MAC_ARG
Date: Mon, 24 Sep 2007 10:28:36 -0700

Here is a patch that adds some type safety to print_mac
by using a struct print_mac_buf * instead of char *.

It also reduces the defconfig vmlinux size by 8 bytes.
