Subject: [net-next PATCH] igb: Use Intel OUI for VF MAC addresses

From: Gregory Rose <gregory.v.rose@...el.com>

This patch changes the default VF MAC address generation to use an Intel
Organizational Unit Identifier (OUI), instead of a fully randomized
Ethernet address.  This is to help prevent accidental MAC address
collisions.
