IIRC some time ago it was decided that randomizing the perm_addr and
generate LL addresses based on that is not the way to go and fragile. We
have this behaviour for ipv6 tunnels, but (IIRC) should not be expanded
and leave user space with this burden.

We can now also add ARPHRD_IP6GRE, maybe in a separate patch.
