Yes, I think it's a bit too complex - it's probably fine to just read 
chunks of 4 bytes.

Yes, a proper fix usually means more work ;)

In the dm9000's devicetree node you'd have a "mac-address = 
<&mac_addr>;". The "mac-address" is already a standard property, and 
the davicom driver already supports it.

The "mac_addr" should be a pointer to the efuse cell that corresponds 
to the MAC address. See the examples at the bottom of 
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/nvmem/nvmem.yaml and 
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/nvmem/nvmem-consumer.yaml.
