Subject: Re: [PATCH] qmi_wwan: Set random MAC on devices with buggy fw

From: Kristian Evensen <>
Date: Fri,  2 Jan 2015 16:21:45 +0100

> From: Kristian Evensen <>
> Some buggy firmwares export an incorrect MAC address (00:a0:c6:00:00:00). This
> makes for example checking devices for random MAC addresses tricky, and you
> might end up with multiple network interfaces with the same address.
> This patch tries to fix, or at least improve, the situation by setting the MAC
> address of devices with this firmware bug to a random address. I tested the
> patch with two devices that has this firmware bug (Huawei E398 and E392), and
> network traffic worked fine after changing the address.
