> On some platforms ACPI method `\\_SB.AMAC` is dynamic and changes to it can
> influence changing the behavior of MAC pass through and what MAC address is used.
> 
> When running USB reset, re-read the MAC address to use to support tools that
> change the policy.
> 
> This is quite similar to using `SIOCSIFHWADDR` except that the actual MAC to use
> comes from ASL rather than from userspace.
> 
> Changes from v1:
>  * Remove an extra unneeded `ether_addr_copy` call
>  * Use `dev_set_mac_address` to ensure all notifiers are called
>  * Shuffle functions to allow code re-use.
