In this case of_get_mac_address() tries to get mac address from
different sources:

    1) device-tree - if it is defined here

    2) nvmem device (eeprom) - if nvmem ref node was pointed in device-tree
       and nvmem provider has the mac address cell.

otherwise the driver will just use the random one.

Yes in this case there are a limitation when the device supports only
30bit (this dma mask is used in prestera_pci.c), physical address range
even on 64bit platform.

And thankfully few months ago someone added such ability for RaspberryPI
(aarch64) to support ZONE_DMA.
