Subject: Re: [PATCH] smsc75xx: only set mac address once on bind

From: Steve Glendinning <>
Date: Mon, 10 Dec 2012 11:01:19 +0000

> This patch changes when we decide what the device's MAC address
> is from per ifconfig up to once when the device is connected.
> Without this patch, a manually forced device MAC is overwritten
> on ifconfig down/up.  Also devices that have no EEPROM are
> assigned a new random address on ifconfig down/up instead of
> persisting the same one.
