You are not funny if you plan to send 500+ patches for every instance of
6 changed to ETH_ALEN

I am not interested playing these grep games, honestly.

If you patch a driver, try to avoid sending one patch per line, that's
really not necessary, thank you.

If the structure definition uses [6], I see no reason to use ETH_ALEN in
the memset()/memcpy().

How is that funny, I don't know.
