Subject: [PATCH] pch_gbe: Use a randomly generated MAC instead of failing probe

If the MAC is invalid or not implemented, use a randomly generated one rather
than failing the probe. Store the generated addr in a new sw_mac array in the
pch_gbe_mac_info structure. Take care to allow for assigning the MAC via
ifconfig by reusing sw_addr to store an assigned mac if probe populated it with
a random one (otherwise the assignment would rely on the ROM and the reset would
fail to write a valid MAC to the rx filter).

Tested on two platforms, one with a valid MAC, the other without a MAC. The
real MAC is used if present, a randomly generated one otherwise. Both are
capable of changing the MAC with ifconfig. They successfully get an IP over
DHCP and pass a simple ping and login over ssh test.

This does not make any attempt to address a missing or invalid MAC for the
pch_phub driver.
