Subject: [PATCH net 2/5] dt-bindings: doc: net: remove Linux API references

In commit 687e3d5550c7 ("dt-bindings: doc: reflect new NVMEM
of_get_mac_address behaviour") I've kept or added references to Linux
of_get_mac_address API which is unwanted so this patch fixes that by
removing those references.
