I've just tried to reword what was already there, anyway, did I understood
your remark properly, would this be more appropriate?

 The MAC address will be determined using the optional properties defined in
 ethernet.txt and only if efuse-mac is set to 0. If any of the optional MAC
 address properties are not present, then the driver will use random MAC
 address.

Thanks!
